Family issues statement over death of Hyde Park woman as search for killer leads to overseas suspect

Police say their prime suspect in the killing of Kamonnan Thiamphanit – the Hyde Park woman known as Angela – is overseas and subject to an extradition order.

A murder investigation was launched after police forced entry to a property in Stanhope Place, just north of Hyde Park, at around 8.30am on Monday, 8 April.

The body of 27-year-old Angela was found inside the address, having sustained stab injuries. She lived at the address.

An inquest was opened and adjourned at Westminster Coroner’s Court on Tuesday, April 16.

Senior investigating officer, Detective Chief Inspector Alison Foxwell, told the inquest that officers have a named individual as a suspect.

DCI Foxwell added that officers have asked the Crown Prosecution Service whether there is sufficient evidence to extradite that person from outside the UK.

Officers will not be confirming this person’s identity, or where it is thought they might be.

Angela’s family have been informed.

Angela, who had dual Chinese-Hong Kong and Thai nationality, had been living in the UK for about nine years, having initially arrived in the UK to study at university. She worked in property management.

In a short statement, her family said: “We are unspeakably hurt by the loss of our dearly loved one and are sincerely thankful for the relentless efforts of the British police in investigating this tragic event.

“We believe that with the commendable teamwork and dedication of the police, this case will be resolved swiftly, thereby preventing any further innocent victims.”
