The inquest into the death of Sheila Seleoane opens today

21 July 2022

Sheila Seleoane lived alone in South London. In the summer of 2019, she is believed to have died in her home. Her body laid undiscovered until February 2022. In the intervening period, residents within the block of flats where she lived had raised concerns for her welfare and that something grave had transpired within her flat. The police had also attended the address on two occasions after she had sadly passed away. There has been national media coverage of the case, and the question of how her apparent disappearance could have gone unnoticed for such an extended period of time. The inquest will examine Ms. Seleoane’s last known movements, her contact with her landlord, The Peabody Trust, and the attendance of police officers when she was sadly found deceased. Amy Clarke is instructed on behalf of the Metropolitan Police.
