The body of a young woman was found at a north London home just minutes before a man ‘who she knew’ was hit and killed by a train at Green Park Tube station.
Met Police are investigating the two deaths but confirmed they are linking them at this stage, when asked by MailOnline.
Officers were called to an address at 12.07pm on Thursday following reports of a death of a woman in her 20s at the property, in Harlesden.
The two deaths occurred within six miles of each other and were spaced just 12 minutes apart
The body of a woman in her 20s was found on Ambleside Road in Harlesden, north London. Detectives are currently making enquiries about the woman who was known to the man who died in Green Park station
A man in his 30s died five miles away at Green Park tube station in central London a few minutes later. His death is not being treated as suspicious.
Police say the man and woman knew each other.
A next-door Neighbour of the house on Ambleside described the woman who lived there as ‘very calm and polite’ along with a man who also lived there.
He said: ‘ It is a complete shock, there were no previous incidents.’
‘It was always a quiet house, you don’t hear anything.’
Mary O’Sullivan, 83, who lives next-door-but-one, said: ‘It is shocking, it’s very sad. This has always been a very quiet street.’
‘I usually see a man coming in and out who looked like a businessman. I don’t know if lived there or is related at all.’
‘He always used to be putting his work things in and out of the car. It hasn’t moved for weeks.’
The man was killed after being hit by a train inside Green Park Underground station on the 10th of October
