Detectives investigating the murder of Iuliana Tudos in Finsbury Park have made an arrest.
The 31-year-old man was arrested at around 13:30hrs on Monday, 1 January, at an address in Dalston.
He was arrested on suspicion of the murder of Iuliana Tudos.
The man has been taken to a south-west London police station where he remains in custody.
A murder investigation, led by DCI Nicola Wall, was launched after Iuliana’s body was found by a member of the public at 16:25hrs on Wednesday, 27 December.
The body of the 22-year-old, who was also known as Julia and Lili (short for Lilith), was found in a disused building located in the north eastern area of the park. Iuliana lived in Upper Tollington Park, Haringey.
Officers and London Ambulance Service attended and Iuliana was pronounced dead at the scene. Her next of kin, who are currently living abroad, have been informed.
A post-mortem examination took place at Haringey Mortuary on Thursday, 28 December, and gave the cause of death as a stab wound to the abdomen and a head injury. Further tests are ongoing.
Haringey Borough Commander Detective Chief Superintendent Des Fahy said that extra officers had been deployed for reassurance and that his officers had been engaging with local residents, community groups and traders.
He said: ”We understand that the local community might have concerns, but I want to reassure people that incidents of this nature are incredibly rare.
”We have police out and about on patrol and local Neighbourhood Policing Teams have been out speaking to members of the community.
”By all accounts, Iuliana was a bubbly lively girl enjoying a fun life in London when she was tragically taken from her loved ones. Our hearts go out to them.”
