Arrests have been made over the fall death of Bethany-Maria Beales - TNBC UK

Two people have been apprehended on suspicion of murdering a woman whose body was found at the foot of a luxury thirty-six story tower block.

Bethany-Maria Beales, 22, was found outside the City of London’s Heron building, on Moor Lane, on 26 May.

The city of London Police said Miss Beales’ injuries were “consistent with a fall from a height”.

A man and a woman, both 38, arrested on suspicion of murder have been bailed.

Miss Beales’ body was found in an open area of the Heron Building complex, close to Barbican and Moorgate Tube stations.

‘Shining Star’

Police said that they were called to Moor Lane just after 13:22 BST.

According to Miss Beale’s family, she has been described as a “shining star” with “the most beautiful singing voice”.

They said: " Beth was a kind, funny, loyal, intelligent, talented and stunningly beautiful person who changed the lives of everyone fortunate enough to know her and lucky enough to be loved by her.”

“She was the world to us all.”

“Our world will not be as bright again now that our shining star has gone.”

It is the first murder investigation to be launched by the City of London Police this year; although its detectives have been loaned to help the Met Police cope with a spike in murder cases.

Det Ch Insp Edelle Michaels added: “We are doing everything we can to determine the circumstances of this tragic incident.”
