Police have launched a murder investigation following the death of an 89-year-old woman in Tottenham.
Police say they were called by London Ambulance Service at around 10:45am today (4 August) to the body of an 89-year-old woman found at an address in Waltheof Gardens in Tottenham.
It is believed that one or more suspects gained entry to the woman’s house in Waltheof Gardens overnight, either late Saturday or early Sunday.
Enquiries are ongoing to establish any possible motive for this murder and have not ruled out burglary as a motive.
DCI Garry Moncrieff of Specialist Crime said: “The woman had clearly been assaulted and, as such, a murder investigation has been launched.
“I want to hear from anyone who saw anything suspicious in and around Waltheof Gardens and the surrounding area on Saturday night or Sunday morning.
“In addition, somebody locally may be aware of a friend or family member who they saw with blood stains on their clothing, or whose behaviour caused them particular concern on Saturday night or Sunday morning. If so, I need to hear from them.”
Anyone with information is asked to call police on 101 quoting CAD 3149/04aug.
