Her body was discovered nearly 24 hours later in Cator Park, Kidbrooke.

Following the news, Nadia took to social media to share her horror over the murder.
The ITV panellist spoke directly to the camera, saying: “I’ve been trying really hard not to get angry because I want people to listen to me.
“But I can’t not be angry. I think for so long we haven’t been angry as women. We have been really patient.
“We told our stories, we’ve shared the most intimate and scary things that have happened to us.
“We’ve made ourselves vulnerable and we’ve openly shared the things that have made us the most scared in our lives. And nothing changes.”
Nadia, 56, later called for everyone to work together to help keep women safe.
Insisting that she wasn’t a ‘man hating sexist’, Nadia continued: “I’m not! I’m a woman and I’m desperate to keep the other women in my life safe.
I’m desperate to keep the other women in my life safe.
“I want the men to help us – the good men and the not so good men.”

“Love to all those that loved those women and have been left with the torture of endless grief.”
