A book of mourning has opened for Sabina Nessa in south-east London, where a murdered teacher was found last weekend.
The OneSpace Community Center in Kidbrook has set up a book for people to write a tribute to the 28-year-old as it reopens.
Ms Nessa’s body was discovered on the afternoon of 18 September near the community center in Cater Park, Kidbrook.
The 28-year-old, who teaches at a primary school in south-east London, was fatally attacked the night before leaving home to visit a friend at a bar.
Police said it should have taken him just five minutes to walk to the depot in Kidbrook village.
His body was discovered the next day by a member of the public walking with a dog, it was reported, hidden under a pile of leaves.
The community center reopened on Saturday, surrounded by police and closed as a “mark of respect” until the weekend.
“OneSpace employees and trustees would like to express their deepest condolences to the family and friends of Sabina Nessa following her tragic death on Friday evening near the OneSpace Building,” the center said in a statement.
It added that there would be a prayer hall for those who wish to use it.
“We’ll also have a book of condolence for anyone who wants to write something,” OneSpace said.
A vigil was organized for Ms Nessa on Friday, which was attended by hundreds of the bereaved.
“We have lost a wonderful, caring, beautiful sister who left this world too early,” her sister told the crowd at Pegler Square – where Ms Nessa was on her way to attack last week.
Detective Chief Inspector Trevor Lowry told Vigilance: “Please help us catch the person responsible for this shocking incident.”
Two men were arrested separately on suspicion of her murder, but were later released under investigation.
The Metropolitan Police are eager to locate the third person who was seen on the night Ms Nessa died.
He released a 12-second clip that showed a bald man dressed in a black hooded coat and gray jeans, holding an orange object, looking over his shoulder and pulling up his hood.
Detectives also circulated an image of a silver car that was imprisoned in the same area they believe the man had access to and appealed to anyone who approached the force immediately.
