Vanessa Santillan died from head and neck injuries, a post mortem has found.
London’s Met Police are investigating the death of 33-year-old Vanessa Santillan, whose body was found in a flat in south west London on 28 March.

She died from head and neck injuries.

A 23-year-old man has been arrested in connection with her death, and been bailed until late May.

Santillan is originally from Miami, Florida.

Police want to speak to anyone who saw her in the days before she was found dead.

"We need to know why this has happened and we want help from anyone who knew her while she was in London,” says Detective Chief Inspector Rebecca Reeves, from the Homicide and Major Crime Command.
