A woman who was stabbed to death in a north London park over Christmas has been named by police as Iuliana Tudos.
A murder inquiry is under way after the discovery of the 22-year-old’s body in a building in Finsbury Park on Wednesday, New Scotland Yard said.
Tudos died as a result of a stab wound to the abdomen and a head injury.
Detectives believe the bar worker may have been killed on Christmas Eve, when she was last seen at 8pm after an evening out with friends. Her next of kin, who are abroad, have been informed.
On Thursday an area of the north-east corner of the park, close to a baseball pitch, was cordoned off as murder detectives investigated how she died.
Tudos’s home in nearby Upper Tollington Park was also searched by police.
A neighbour, Sebastian Jonathan, said: “She was a very nice person … I met her twice when she came over for beers when we had barbecues last summer.
“The police refused to give me any information. I had to Google it to see that she was the one found in the park.”
Tudos, who also called herself Julie, was from Moscow and worked at the World’s End pub in Camden, according to her Facebook page and neighbours.
She was 5ft 1in (1.55 metres) tall with a slim build and was last seen in Camden Road. She was wearing a black and red hooded top with “Agnostic Front” – the name of a US punk band – on it, with light jeans and black and white Vans shoes.
Police said she was wearing glasses and was carrying a black and white fabric bag with “Fighting against Animal Testing” written on it.
No arrests have been made in connection with the murder and the scene remained cordoned off as police continued their investigation.
