Death of woman in Greenwich townhouse fire

Posted on: Thursday, September 06, 2018

A woman was found dead after a suspected arson attack on a townhouse in Greenwich on Thursday (6 September). 

 

Police statement:

Detectives from the Homicide and Major Crime Command are investigating after a woman died following a suspected arson attack on a townhouse in Greenwich.
Police were called at 01:23hrs on Thursday, 6 September to Centurion Square, Berber Parade, following reports of a fire at a residential address.
Officers and London Ambulance Service attended, along with London Fire Brigade who extinguished the fire.
A woman, believed to be aged in her late 40s, was found deceased inside the address. Her next-of-kin are aware.
A post-mortem examination will be scheduled in due course.
Two other people from the property, a man in his sixties and a woman in her fifties, were apparently injured when leaving the address.
Both have been taken to hospital where their condition is not believed to be life-changing or life threatening.
The fire is being treated as suspicious and a murder investigation has been launched.
At this early stage any speculation about anyone targeted or any possible motive for the attack is unhelpful.
Detectives are keen to hear from anyone in the area who heard or saw anything suspicious before or after the fire started.
Any witnesses or anyone with any information is asked to call the incident room on 020 8721 4868 or contact via Twitter @MetCC. Quote CAD 380/06SEP.
