This is the second woman found dead in a freezer in Canning Town after suffering “multiple injuries”.
Henriett Szucs, 34, was from Hungary originally but had been in the UK for several years – although it is understood she hadn’t been heard from since 2016.
Her body was found shoved inside a chest freezer in an East London flat on April 26 alongside missing mum-of-three Mihrican Mustafa, 38.
Mihrican, also known as Mary Jane, vanished mysteriously last May after popping to the shops with just her phone and £3 in her pocket.
Cops revealed the victims were fully clothed and fused together when they were discovered.
They have carried out a post mortem on both women but a cause of death has not been established – although they suffered “multiple injuries”.
Henriett was last heard from in summer 2016 when she spoke to someone in Hungary on the phone – with cops asking for anyone who had contact with her after to come forward.
Detective Chief Inspector Simon Harding, of the Homicide and Major Crime Command, said: “Today we have been able to confirm to Henriett’s family that she is sadly one of the women found in the property at Vandome Close. They are of course devastated and we would ask for their privacy to be respected.
“MJ’s family continue to try to come to terms with their loss and we have specialist officers supporting both families.
“Now we know Henriett’s identity, we would appeal for anyone with information about her and in particular her association with the address in Vandome Close where she was found to come forward.
“We also continue to also ask for help to piece together the last movements of MJ’s life. We need to build up a full picture of both of these women’s lives, whether they knew each other, who they associated with and what they were doing in and around Vandome Close and the Canning Town area.
“The way in which they died is truly shocking and our heart goes out to these women’s friends and families.”
Police was scrambled to the flat in Canning Town on April 26 over concern for a man’s welfare when they made the grisly discovery.
Speaking at the time, DCI Simon Harding said their condition had made the investigation “one of the most challenging and complex” he had seen in 28 years.
Zahid Younis, 34, was arrested after police found the corpses.
Mary’s ex-boyfriend Ted Jolly, 50, who lives close to Younis, was arrested on suspicion of murder last week but later released.
