‘Rest her soul’: Emotional tributes paid to Edmonton woman, 58, found dead in her house

Now neighbours have paid tribute to the victim, while floral tributes have been left at the police cordon outside a two-storey home on the street.

Flowers have been laid at the Edmonton house where a woman was found dead, as neighbours paid emotional tributes to the 58-year-old victim.

Police and paramedics rushed to Church Street, Edmonton, Enfield, at 8.30pm on Monday, where a woman with multiple injuries was pronounced dead at the scene.

A 33-year-old woman was arrested on suspicion of murder on Tuesday and is in custody.

Neighbour Nasra, who did not wish to give her last name, told LondonWorld: “It makes me very sad to hear.

“She’s my neighbour, and even though I didn’t know her I feel that sympathy. She will rest her soul.”

While the mother-of-two said she had moved to the area two months ago, adding: “I’ve never seen any problems here.

“As soon as I moved in everything was okay. It’s nice.”

And neighbour Nick Costa, who has lived in Edmonton for 42 years, said: “I know all my neighbours.

“They are lovely people living around here - there are no problems.”

He added: “It used to be more families, and grown up kids. It’s changed a lot.

“I said to [the police] earlier ‘what’s going on?’ They don’t say a lot.”

While local Butterflies nursery worker Sabrina Necolaou called the death concerning and said: “It’s a shame. It’s upsetting for the family.”

But she said there were issues of crime and antisocial behaviour in the neighbourhood, adding: “You do hear about a lot of knife crime and gun crime around here.

“I went to school in Edmonton and unfortunately lost a friend due to knife crime.

“You do hear Edmonton’s not really a nice area.”

Wesley Dodoo, another neighbour, who has lived on the street for six years, said: “I asked the police ‘has something happened that I should be worried about?’

“They said nothing but you’re going to worry, with something like this going on.”

And he told LondonWorld: “My neighbour told me someone had passed away.

“I’ve asked the police a few times and they are not saying anything whatsoever. All the neighbours don’t know much.”

He described the area as “mostly fine”, adding: “Edmonton has a bit of a reputation, possibly, but not around here. This is all residential, mostly families, and it’s quiet.

“I’ve lived in London all my life and I’ve seen much worse and been more worried. It seems like they have it under control.”
