Police believe that Mr Troyan was attacked at some point before 4pm on the day he died and are continuing to appeal for witnesses to come forward.
Mr Troyan's friend Sean McGuigan told the Evening Standard last week that he believed the 63-year-old was "too trusting".
He said: "A lot of people around him were after his money. He had some incredibly expensive antiques in his flat including a vase worth GBP100,000.
"He was incredibly trusting, too trusting. He would lavish gifts on people and was quite carefree with his money."
Police have appealed for anyone who saw anything suspicious in or around Mount Street to contact them on 020 8721 4066 or Crimestoppers to remain anonymous on 0800 555 111.
