Police investigate suspicious deaths of man and woman killed in fall from block of flats

The deaths of two people who fell from a block of flats in south London are being treated as suspicious, police have said.

Renata Poncova and Tony Taylor, both 33, died after falling from the eighth-floor of a block of flats in Marchwood Close, Camberwell.

Scotland Yard said detectives had uncovered evidence at the flat, as well as a possible disturbance at the property before they fell, that indicated there were suspicious circumstances.

Police were called to Marchwood Close at 11.44pm on November 2 following reports that a man and a woman were injured after apparently falling from a height.

Both Ms Poncova and Mr Taylor were pronounced dead at the scene at 12.30am by paramedics.

A subsequent post-mortem found that both had died as a result of multiple injuries ‘consistent with having fallen from a height.’

Detective Inspector Phil Coster said: ‘I am appealing for anyone who knew Renata Poncova and Tony Taylor, and had contact with them in the days before their deaths, to call police.

‘Evidence at the flat and a possible disturbance at the flat prior to the fall leads us to believe there are suspicious circumstances.

‘We need witnesses to come forward to help us build a picture of what happened before these deaths. If you know anything please call us.’
