Catherine Burke's body was discovered at a house in a quiet street in Muswell Hill last Thursday evening.

Her neighbours in Hill Road said at the weekend they were disturbed to read reports she was found tied up.

Catherine will be deeply missed by family and close friends. We urge anyone with any information to come forward to police. As a family we ask for privacy at this difficult time.
