A woman who was found dead in her home in Luton earlier this month has been named as Tabussum Winning.

The body of the 34-year-old who was originally from Pakistan and recently gave birth was discovered in her home in Essex Close.


A body of a man was discovered a week later outside the property and police believe that the two deaths are linked.

Although the two bodies were found a week apart, police believe that both were killed at the same time and the man’s body stayed undiscovered in the bin for a week.

Detective Inspector Fraser Wylie, of the Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire, and Hertfordshire Major Crime Unit, said: “We have a dedicated team of detectives committed to establishing the circumstances both deaths, and I’m appealing for the public to come forward if they know anything which could help our investigation.

“Did you know Tabussum? Whether you knew her as a friend or a colleague, or simply used to see her out and about in Luton, we want to hear from you.

“We’re also continuing to ask for anyone who witnessed suspicious activity between Friday 7 and Monday October 10 in and around Essex Close to get in touch.

“We’re particularly keen to speak to anyone who saw a black wheelie bin being taken along the street, or anyone who lived nearby who has noticed that their wheelie bin has gone missing.”

One man has been arrested in connection with both deaths and has been released on bail pending further enquiries.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Major Crime Unit on 101 quoting Operation Connery.
