A MAN and woman have been arrested for the suspected murder of a woman who vanished from her home in August.
Norma Girolami, 70, from Highgate, North London, was reported missing on Monday, September 20.
She had not been seen by her friends and family since mid-August.
A 39-year-old man and a 34-year-old woman were initially arrested on suspicion of fraud and false imprisonment, but both were subsequently further arrested on suspicion of murder.
The man was arrested at an address in Islington on Friday October 1, while the woman was arrested in Finchley, London.
Detective Chief Inspector Kate Blackburn, of the Metropolitan Police, said: “Norma has not been seen by her friends or family since the middle of August. As a result of our investigation we are extremely concerned that Norma may have come to some harm.
"Her home shows no sign of her planning to leave, food was left in her fridge and she said nothing to her friends and relatives.
"This is completely out of character and as more and more time has passed, this has only added to our fears that some harm has come to her."
She added: “In view of these concerns for her welfare, and to stop the anguish her friends and relatives are enduring, it is imperative that anyone with information contacts police."
Cops are now urging anyone who may have information about Norma's whereabouts, "no matter how trivial," to come forward.
Detective Blackburn said: "Norma, if you are safe and well please get in touch with the police.”
