Scotland Yard launched a murder probe after the women’s clothed bodies were found fused together in a small chest freezer.
A missing persons investigation was launched last year into the disappearance of mother-of-three Ms Mustafa, originally from Cyprus.
In October a spokesman for Scotland Yard said Ms Szucs – a Hungarian national – had been in the UK for several years but was of no fixed address and had been last heard from in Summer 2016.
Mihrican Mustafa, 38, also known as Mary Jane, was identified as one of the women whose bodies were found
Post-mortem examinations showed they both suffered multiple injuries.
Det Ch Supt Richard Tucker previously said: ‘The launch of any murder investigation is naturally of concern to the local community.
‘We have borough officers in the area supporting colleagues from the Homicide and Major Crime Command as they investigate the full circumstances.’
