The Wembley Point Woman
On the 29th of October, 2004, a woman was seen jumping from the window of the 21st floor of Wembley Point, London, England. She was wearing a maroon bomber zip-up jacket with fabric cuffs, a black leather glove on her right hand and a very thin black polo neck jumper. Over the top of this, she wore a claret crew neck jumper. She wore black tights, trousers and black Sketchers boots with a zip and buckle on the sides. She wore a stud in the right ear and a watch with a black strap and silver face. She wore two rings: one white/silver metal ring on her right index finger (conch shell design) and a silver ring on her left little finger. In her possession she had; £5.20 in cash, an oil painting, a Guardian newspaper dated 29.10.04, a black carrier bag with clear lettering CPNY (Central Park, New York), a black disposable lighter, a used packet of 10 Marlborough cigarettes, a bus pass valid 26.10.04 to 01.11.04 issued at Seven Sisters Road station, Tottenham, London at 07.07 am. Who was she? In this compelling episode, we dive into this unidentified body case.
