A woman stabbed to death in Brixton has been named by police.

Johanita Kossiwa Dogbey, 31, was pronounced dead after being found with knife wounds in Stockwell Park Walk on the afternoon of 1 May.

Her family said in a statement: "We are devastated by the news of the passing of our daughter.

"Johanita was a smart, dedicated, and loving girl who always helped anyone. She hasn’t got one bad bone in her body.

"She wouldn’t hurt a fly. We can’t believe a senseless crime like this has happened as we can’t imagine who would do this to her.

"Our hearts are completely broken and will not understand why someone would take our beautiful girl away from us, she will forever be in our hearts as we will carry on living life as gracefully and beautifully as she did."

A 33-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of murder and remains in custody after appearing at Croydon Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday.

Police believe Ms Dogbey was approached from behind and attacked by someone unknown to her. Officers continue to appeal for witnesses and anyone with information to come forward.
