Reading Time: 1 minute

A woman who was found dead in a freezer along with another female has been named by police as Henriett Szucs.

The two bodies were found frozen, clothed and on top of each other at the flat in Vandome Close in Canning Town, east London, on 26 April.

Szucs, 34, was a Hungarian national who had been in the UK for several years but had no fixed address, Scotland Yard said. Her next of kin had been informed.

The other woman whose body was found in Canning Town was Mihrican Mustafa, 38, also known as MJ.

The mother of three, who lived in the local area, had been reported missing to Newham police on 10 May 2018 and work had been ongoing to trace her.

A man has been charged with two counts of preventing a lawful burial.

Zahid Younis, 34, of Vandome Close, is due to appear at Kingston Crown Court on 29 May.

The Met Police said post mortems had been carried out and no formal cause of death had been established.

But the force said both women “suffered multiple injuries” and further tests were being carried out.

Officers are working to build up a comprehensive picture of activity that took place at the address in Vandome Close. They know it was a property that various people used to stay at, transient members of the community who moved from address to address. It was also frequented by drug users.
