Detectives are investigating the murder of a young woman in a possible so-called honour killing.
The body of the woman, who was believed to be 19, was found at a house in Kingston, London, just three hours after she was reported missing along with another woman, who is believed to be in her twenties.
Police said the pair may have been forced to go to the address by a man they both knew before being subjected to a “violent attack”
The older woman managed to escape to get help and was admitted to a south London hospital with stab and slash wounds on Wednesday evening before police went to the house in Coombe Lane West.
Referring to reports the victim had been found “cut up in a fridge”, the Metropolitan Police insisted the dead woman was discovered “intact” at around 8pm.
Asked if police were looking into whether the murder was being treated as a so-called honour killing, the Met said detectives are keeping an “open mind”.
