South Ealing stabbing: Police appeal for witnesses after waitress killed on way home from work

Ania Jedrkowiak, 21, was found dying in an alleyway in South Ealing after being stabbed multiple times.

Detectives are appealing for more witnesses, after a waitress was stabbed to death while walking home in South Ealing.

Ania Jedrkowiak had finished work at a restaurant and was walking with a friend when she was attacked in an alleyway.

She tragically died at the scene.

Officers from the Met’s Specialist Crime Command are piecing together the events leading up to Ania’s death, and believe there may be several witnesses who have not yet come forward.

Det Ch Insp Brian Howie, senior investigating officer, said: “Ania’s life was taken in the most tragic of circumstances and her family are understandably completely devastated by what has happened.

“My team of detectives have already made significant progress, however I believe there may be people with information who we have not yet spoken to and I am keen to speak with them as soon as possible.”
