A manhunt has been launched after one London sex worker was killed and another attacked.
Police are searching for Robert Richard Fraser, also known as Robert Aleem and Shia Robert Jackson, after the two incidents, which have been linked.
He is wanted in connection with the murder of Colombian-born British national Maria Duque-Tunjano, whose body was found at an address in Earls Court Square, south-west London, on Friday January 31.
Detectives believe the body of the 48-year-old, who lived in Streatham, had been there for several days, while a post-mortem found she died from blunt trauma to the head.
‘Enquiries have established that Maria was a sex worker who used the flat in Earls Court Square for her work. It is believed she was robbed of a quantity of cash during the assault,’ Scotland Yard said.
