Beryl Hallam Augustine Tennyson, known as Hallam to friends and family and aged 85 years, was found brutaly stabbed to death in his home in Highgate on December 21. He had several stab wounds and serious head injuries. Police, who described the act as a brutal offense against an elderly and vulnerable man, had appealed for help in the case from the community. According to the article:
Mr Tennyson was named after his great grandfather’s close friend, the writer Arthur Hallam. The death of Hallam prompted the elegiac, mournful sequence In Memoriam, which was published in 1850, the year that Tennyson was appointed Poet Laureate by Queen Victoria. Today the Metropolitan Police said in a statement that a man was being questioned at a West London police station in connection with the murder.
