The death of a prostitute whose body was discovered in a Tottenham river eight months ago is still a mystery.

The body of sex worker and drug addict Stephanie Elaidi was found in the River Lea, near Bream Close in Tottenham back in May last year.

Her body was decomposed when it was dragged out by police and was only identified as the 34-year-old french woman after extensive DNA tests.

Ms Elaidi died from a head injury and police are treating her death as suspicious.

Officers believe Ms Elaidi came over from France to the UK in 2000 and lived in Dunstable before moving to London.

It is thought she was working as a sex worker at the time of her death and also had a drug addiction. Posters have gone up around Tottenham searching for anyone who may recognise Ms Elaidi or have any clue to her death.

Investigating officer, DCI Tony Nash said: "Our enquiries continue into the circumstances surrounding Ms Elaidi's death and I would urge anyone who recognises her, including any of her friends, family or associates to contact us with information."

Anyone with information is asked to call the incident room at Hendon on 020 8358 0100 or Crimestoppers 0800 555 111 if they wish to remain anonymous.
