Balham Park Rd Murder

Postby NewExPatMom » Tue Nov 13, 2018 12:29 pm

Just saw a headline of a murder of a 62 year old woman on Balham Park Rd.  Anyone know address?  I live close by.  Very sad news.

So sad! No update apart from a man has been arrested and is being held in custody.

This is very very sad. IS there any more news. Was the person arrested a partner or husband or someone she knew who might have knocked at the door so she let them in?

I feel so much for her family.

An all too familiar husband kills wife story. Undoubtedly following years of domestic violence where this poor woman has not had the means, knowledge or ability to escape from her murderer. And they wonder why these solidarity for women movements and the rise of support for feminism is still so important. There is still very far to go. So sad.

Two ‘honour’ killings in two days last week in London with this and the crossbow incident in Ilford.

Part and parcel of living in a diverse and culturally enriched city I guess.

I had to reply to Ratski to say that i thought that domestic murder had very little to do with culture and diversity and has always happened at all levels of society everywhere in the world.

Just because she has an Asian name doesn’t de facto make this an honour killing! I haven’t seen it described as such anywhere in the news...
