Maida Vale fall death may be linked with fatal stabbing
THE murder of a mother-of-two found with multiple stab wounds in Harlesden on Friday night is being linked with a man who later fell to his death in Maida Vale.
34-year-old Amanda Farquharson, from Wembley, was found dead in a car on Minet Avenue at 6.25pm having had a “heated” argument with a man.
Just an hour later, police were then called to reports of a man having fallen from Torridon House, Randolph Gardens, where Keith Van Cooten, 44, was pronounced dead at the scene.
Police are provisionally linking the two events but inquiries continue and detectives are retaining an open mind.
The suspect in Ms Farquharson’s murder is described as a black man, approximately 6ft tall with a slim build and a goatee beard.
He is believed to have been wearing a dark-coloured hooded top, blue or grey jeans and possibly a cream-coloured baseball cap with blue writing on it.
Detective Chief Inspector Jackie Sebire said: “This is a tragic murder that has deprived two children of their mother, and a family of its daughter and we are appealing for witnesses and anyone with information about the murder to contact us.
