“She was due to attend a meeting in the Barnet area around gardening and good practice and she did not turn up to that meeting,” said DCI Noel McHugh, of the Met’s homicide and major crime command. “So a friend became concerned and then alerted family members.”
Neighbour Danila Catruta, 39, said she had been left scared by the murder: “Since I heard about it I keep thinking about the situation. How can people do this? I feel very sorry about what happened because no one should be treated like this.”
Adri-Soejoko was listed as secretary of the Colindale Allotment and Garden Association at the 95-plot site and neighbours said she could often be seen tending her own garden.
Window cleaner Eddie Volkovskig, 24, told the Evening Standard: “I saw police cars a few times in the road but didn’t think anything of it. Lea was very friendly and very happy.
