Cordons remain in place as inquiries continue to establish the full circumstances of the woman’s death.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the Metropolitan Police on 101, quoting reference number 914/04APR.
The killing comes after a 23-year-old man was fatally stabbed in south London earlier this week.
Reece Young was pronounced dead at the scene after police were called to reports of three men fighting on Alpha Road in Croydon at 9.10pm on Tuesday.
Two men suffering from stab wounds left the scene in a vehicle and later attended a hospital where they were both arrested on suspicion of murder.
One of the suspects, thought to be aged in his 30s, assaulted officers and staff before fleeing from hospital following his arrest.
The stabbing took place on the same street where 19-year-old Tai Jordan O’Donnell was stabbed to death on March 3, with a woman later charged with murder.
Multiple attacks also took place in Croydon on February 5 with 10 stabbings in the space of two hours, leaving one man dead and 10 others injured.
