'Abducted Woman' Found Dead In Abandoned Car one Hour Later, Brownlow Road, Hackney, East London

A woman thought to have been abducted from a house in east London has been found dead an hour later in an abandoned car.

Police said the 20-year-old had died from stab wounds.

Initial investigations suggest a male suspect kidnapped the woman from a home in Brownlow Road, Hackney, following a disturbance around 7am.

Just over an hour later she was discovered dead inside the getaway car - a grey Fiat Stilo - just 1.6 miles away in an alleyway at Ryder Mews.

Police and London Ambulance Service were called to the residential adress where two other people were also injured.

A 22-year-old man and a 24-year-old woman were taken to hospital suffering stab wounds. The man remains in a stable condition while the woman was treated for a minor injury before being discharged.

A police spokesman said the deceased woman has not been formally identified but is believed to be the same person who was taken from Brownlow Road.

He added: "A post-mortem examination will take place in due course."

Police revealed no further details of the suspect but said inquiries are ongoing to trace him. Read More
