Obviously, they are trying to hide the motivation. The Mayor of London, presumably in charge of the Metropolitan Police who are conducting the investigation, is a Muslim and has strong incentives to hide any hints of his own religion being tied to this attack. And it appears that police who don't like the coverup are leaking evidence to the press:
So, yeah. ISIS claims him as a soldier. He had an encryption app on his phone and sent a message immediately before the attack. Police arrested 11 people after the attack (even if they subsequently released 8, that's a lot of people connected to an attack for a "lone attacker"). But the police can't add one and one to get two.
