Case synopsis:

Bethany-Maria Beales, 22, fell to her death at The Heron in the City of London on 26 May 2018.

She was found in an open area of the building on Moor Lane at around 1.30pm and pronounced dead at the scene.

A post-mortem found she suffered injuries consistent with a fall from a height.

Detectives arrested a man and a woman, both aged 38, on suspicion of murder before releasing them on bail while the investigation continues.

Detective Chief Inspector Edelle Michaels from the City of London Police said: “We would like to extend our thoughts and condolences to Bethany’s family and friends at this difficult time and reassure them we are doing everything we can to determine the circumstances of this tragic incident.

“Anyone who may have witnessed the incident, or may have information which can assist our investigation is asked to contact police as soon as possible.

“We are particularly keen to speak to anyone who was in the Heron building, or the vicinity, on Saturday that may have seen or heard something."

Miss Beales'' family said in a statement: “Beth was a kind, funny, loyal, intelligent, talented and stunningly beautiful person who changed the lives of everyone fortunate enough to know her and lucky enough to be loved by her. She was more than a daughter, grand-daughter, niece, cousin, stepsister, step-aunty, god-daughter or friend. She was the world to us all.

“She had the brightest smile and the most beautiful singing voice. She was our songbird. She had an amazing talent that, if it had been seen by the world, would have become known to millions.

“To say we will miss her does not come close to describing how we feel. Our world will never be as bright again now that our shining star has gone.”

Witnesses are asked to call 0207 601 2222 or, alternatively, report information anonymously to Crimestoppers online or on 0800 555 111.
