The 22-year-old, who worked at the World’s End pub, in Camden High Street, was reported as missing by friends after she failed to turn up to celebrate Christmas with them.

Her body was found by a member of the public two days later on Wednesday afternoon in a disused hut near the softball pitches in Finsbury Park.

She was pronounced dead at the scene, and a post-mortem later showed she had died of a stab wound to the stomach and a head injury.

A fundraiser set up by her friends has now raised over £16,000 towards funeral costs.

Iuliana, also known as Julia or Lili, lived in Upper Tollington.

Extra officers were deployed for reassurance around the park following her death.

Det Ch Supt Des Fahy said: “We understand that the local community might have concerns, but I want to reassure people that incidents of this nature are incredibly rare.

“We have police out and about on patrol and local neighbourhood policing teams have been out speaking to members of the community.
