Stabbed woman's death 'linked' to man's flat fall death

  • Published

Detectives investigating the murder of a woman have linked her death to that of a man who was found dead an hour later.

The woman, aged about 34, was found stabbed to death in a car in Harlesden, north-west London, on Friday evening.

An hour later a 44-year-old man died after falling from a block of flats about three miles away.

A police spokesman said they were provisionally linking the two cases but were keeping "an open mind".

Stab wounds

He said emergency services were called to Minet Avenue, Harlesden, at 1825 BST to reports of a woman in a car having been stabbed.

He said: "Officers attended with the London Ambulance Service and the woman was pronounced dead at the scene having suffered from stab wounds."

A post-mortem examination carried out the following day confirmed she died as a result of multiple stab wounds.

At 1920 BST police were called to reports that a man had fallen from a building in Randolph Gardens, Kilburn.

The spokesman said: "The 44-year-old man was pronounced dead at the scene. His death is not being treated as suspicious."
