She had lived in Moyne Road, Broadfield.
She was addicted to crack cocaine.
She had previously lived in Peckham, but her family had moved to Broadfield eleven months earlier because she had become involved with drugs. However, she was known to return to Peckham and to go to the Brixton area to see friends.
Police opened a murder investigation in 2002.
She was 5ft tall with brown eyes and black hair and had a Mediterranean complexion. She was half Maltese. She also had a scar on her forehead about two inches long and had one leg shorter than the other which caused her to limp.
