A suspect in the murder of a young Thai woman who was found stabbed to death in London is believed to have fled abroad, according to UK media reports.

It was also revealed that Kamonnan “Angela” Thiamphanit was planning to fly home to visit her family in Ratchaburi but cancelled shortly before she was killed.

Kamonnan, 27, was found dead on the morning of April 8 at the Airbnb property she was renting in an affluent neighbourhood near Hyde Park in central London.

A friend had contacted police the night before after becoming concerned for her welfare, while neighbours had reported hearing screaming from the address.

Kamonnan, who had dual Chinese-Hong Kong and Thai nationality, had been working in London in property management. She moved to the UK eight years ago to study graphic design at the London College of Communication, The Times reported.

Police believe her attacker was known to her.

Kamonnan had been renting out 6 Stanhope Place, a £4-million property that formerly housed the Embassy of Ethiopia, as an Airbnb property.

“At some point on April 8 she was attacked, which caused her death. We have a named individual we are looking for at this moment,” police said, adding that the suspect had since fled the country.
