A murder suspect linked to the stabbing of a woman at an Airbnb in Westminster has fled the country, police say.

Kamonnan Thiamphanit, who was known to friends as Angela, was found dead at a property she was renting in Stanhope Place on April 7.

The 27-year-old, who had dual Chinese-Hong Kong and Thai nationality, had been working in property management.

At an inquest into her death, it was revealed police have the name of the suspect and believe he has left the country.

Detective Chief Inspector Alison Foxwell, the Senior Investigating Officer in Ms Thiamphanit’s murder investigation, said that police believe her attacker was known to her.

DCI Foxwell told Westminster Coroners Court: “We believe that the person who attacked her was known to her, this isn't a stranger attack but at some point after the April 6 at 6.15am she was attacked in the address and sustained a number of stab injuries.

"We are currently seeking the perpetrator but cannot give much more information about that at this stage, I'm afraid."

When asked for further details by coroner Fiona Wilcox, DCI Foxwell said: “I think it unlikely anyone will be imminently charged.

“We are requesting with the CPS whether we have sufficient evidence to extradite someone from outside the UK, so I think it unlikely.”

She added that Ms Thiamphanit - whose identity was confirmed via police fingerprint screening - had died as a result of multiple sharp force injuries.

Multiple neighbours living nearby said they’d heard several “high-pitched screams” on April 6.

Calls concerning Ms Thiamphanit‘s welfare were made by her friends at both 7.05pm and 9.34pm on the night. 

The Metropolitan Police has referred itself to IPSO as officers visited her home 13 hours after a call was made by her friends.
