Sandra Zmijan was reported missing on Saturday and her body was found at the address in Hayes on Monday morning
Police have released a picture of the woman whose body was found in the back garden of a house in west London.
Aged in her early 30s, Sandra Zmijan was reported missing on Saturday and her body was found at the address in Hayes on Monday morning.
Officers had been called at about 9.35am following concerns for her welfare.
A 26-year-old man, who was known to her, was arrested on suspicion of murder and remains in custody, the Metropolitan Police said.
Detectives appealed for anyone who may have seen her after 8pm on Thursday to come forward.
They believe she travelled from her home in Southall, west London, to Whittington Avenue, Hayes that evening.
The incident comes after the number of homicides in London so far this year reached 100 earlier this month.
“We are very keen to hear from anyone who thinks they may have seen Sandra from Thursday evening onwards so we can piece together her movements,” said Detective Chief Inspector Simon Harding.
“We have made an arrest in connection with this incident but would urge anyone with information to call the incident room on 020 8721 4205 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.”
