Police have now identified one of the two bodies found deceased in a freezer in Canning Town, Newham as Mihrican Mustafa, 38, also known as MJ. She is a mother of three and has been reported as missing since May last year.

A police statement reads –

DCI Simon Harding, leading the investigation, said: “We are now confident that one of the females found is MJ. As you can imagine, this is a devastating time for her family and we would ask for their privacy to be respected.”

““I would appeal for anyone who knew MJ and may have information about what happened to her and in particular her association with the address in Vandrome Road where she was found to come forward. Did you see her just before or maybe even after she was reported missing?”

Enquiries continue to identify the second female found at the address. Police had been called at 11:45hrs on Friday, 26 April to the flat in Vandome Close E16 following concerns for the welfare of a male occupant.Local officers gained entry and discovered the bodies
