Detectives have launched a murder investigation after the death of a woman who was discovered in a flat in Bromley was deemed suspicious.

As part of the investigation, officers are appealing for help to locate a man they wish to speak to in connection with the incident.

Police were called by the London Ambulance Service at 6.13pm on Sunday, May 20, to a home in Chatterton Road following reports of a woman found dead.

Officers attended and her next of kin have been informed

Although formal identification awaits, police are satisfied that the woman is 31-year-old Sophie Cavanagh from Bromley.

The death was initially treated as unexplained, but initial findings from the post-mortem suggest that Sophie’s death is suspicious.

Police are awaiting the full outcome of the post-mortem and are working hard to trace the whereabouts of Sophie’s estranged husband, 34-year-old Martin Cavanagh, as a matter or urgency.

He is believed to have links to south east London and the south coast.

Detectives from the Homicide and Major Crime command, led by Det Chief Insp Richard Vandenbergh, are investigating.

There have been no arrests and enquiries continue.

DCI Vandenbergh said: “I would urge anyone who knows the whereabouts of Martin Cavanagh to get in touch.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the incident room on 0208 721 4961 or via Twitter @MetCC, or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
