Police name woman found dead in west London back garden
A woman whose body was found in the back garden of a house in west London has been named as Sandra Zmijan by police.
Aged in her early 30s, Ms Zmijan was reported missing on Saturday and her body was found at the address in Hayes on Monday morning.
A 26-year-old man, who was known to her, was arrested on suspicion of murder and remains in custody, the Metropolitan Police said.
The incident comes after the number of homicides in London so far this year reached 100 earlier this month.
Detectives have released an image of Ms Zmijan and appealed for anyone who may have seen her after 8pm on Thursday to come forward.
They believe she travelled from her home in Southall, west London, to Whittington Avenue, Hayes that evening.
“We are very keen to hear from anyone who thinks they may have seen Sandra from Thursday evening onwards so we can piece together her movements,” said Detective Chief Inspector Simon Harding.
“We have made an arrest in connection with this incident but would urge anyone with information to call the incident room on 020 8721 4205 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.”
