Woman, 27, found stabbed to death in Westminster home named

A 27-year-old woman stabbed to death at her home in Westminster has been named.

Kamonnan Thiamphanit - who was known to her friends as Angela - was found dead in Stanhope Place near Hyde Park on Monday morning after police forced entry to the property.

No arrests have been made so far, and a post-mortem on Wednesday found the cause of death was sharp force trauma.

Police believe her attacker was known to the victim, who had dual nationality - Chinese/Hong Kong and Thai.

The Metropolitan Police has referred itself to the Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC) after officers were contacted twice by Ms Thiamphanit's friends because they were worried for her safety.

Commander Owain Richards said: "We know that her friends had contacted the police on the Sunday evening on two occasions, one at about 7pm and one at just after 9.30pm, concerned for her welfare.

"Because of that contact we have made a referral to the Independent Office for Police Conduct for a review, which is a standard procedure in this matter when somebody contacts us and then subsequently they have suffered a serious injury or death.

"And we are looking at the circumstances as to what happened with our response."

He added: "While our detectives are keeping an open mind on the motive, I can confirm that it is likely her attacker was known to her.

"I reiterate our appeal for anyone who has information or material that could assist us with the investigation to contact us."

One of her neighbours has told Sky News she does not "feel very safe" following the fatal stabbing.

Katerina was studying in her flat when she saw "much more people than usual" standing outside the victim's apartment.

She texted her mother that night to say how "noisy" it was in the area, which she thought was unusual for a Sunday.

Police reassured her that it was an "isolated incident" - but Katerina says she still feels "scared".
