The man was the 116th murder victim in the capital so far this year.
A neighbour said they saw two people standing outside the semi-detached house last night.
The neighbour, who did not wish to be named, said: ‘I was at a Halloween party last night at the Greyhound pub and as I was walking by I saw two people by the cottage in the dark.
‘The man was wearing a white vest and looked up at me as I passed. I couldn’t make out the other person in the darkness. They were very quiet.

‘Just then a police car with its lights out pulled up. I don’t know who lives there, just the next door neighbour. It’s very sad whatever has happened.’
Another neighbour who lives in the other cottage adjoining the house where the alleged murder took place refused to comment.
A group of forensics officers remain at the scene, while the surrounding area is closed off.
Locals were shocked about the tragic news, and described the area as a ‘tight-knit community’ while police at the scene said it was a ‘sensitive’ case.
Regulars at the Greyhound Pub said they did not know the residents of the cottage.
One said that the first they knew of the incident on Friday night was when police and ambulances turned up.
Detectives from the Homicide and Major Crime Command are now investigating the alleged murder in Hendon.
