Detectives investigating the death of a woman in Enfield have today, Monday 24 August, named her as Jourdain John-Baptiste, 22 of Enfield.

Police were called at 01:42hrs on Friday, 21 August, to reports of a woman believed to have fallen from a fourth floor flat in Gainsborough House, Enfield.

Jourdain was taken to an east London hospital in a critical condition. She died in hospital a short while later.

Next of kin have been informed. A post-mortem examination will be scheduled in due course.

The death is currently being treated as unexplained.

Detectives continue to appeal for information and witnesses and an incident room has opened under Detective Chief Inspector Neale Baldock of the Homicide and Major Crime Command (HMCC).

We are appealing for witnesses or anyone with any information to come forward as soon as possible. We are especially keen to hear from anyone who may have witnessed what occurred on the victim's balcony prior to her fall to help us with our investigation."
