This is the first image of a woman who fell to her death on the eighth floor of her apartment block in south London.

Renata Poncova died on November 2, together with her boyfriend Tony Taylor, both 33, in Marchwood Close, Peckham.

The police were shut down after the incident around 11:45 pm and both were declared dead by the paramedics at the scene.

The police believe the couple died under "suspicious circumstances" and demanded more information from the public.

Neighbors said that Mrs. Poncova, an Eastern European, recently lost her job in an apartment agency before she died and Mr. Taylor died last Friday.

Outside the skyscraper are now a flower shrine, pictures of Mrs. Poncova and candles, including a tribute from colleagues of The Apartment Service, where she worked.

Witnesses to the aftermath portrayed a "terrible" scene after the pair landed on the sidewalk in Southwark, south-east London, just inches from each other.

The couple is said to have been together for six months.

Within hours of the case, the police forced themselves into the apartment, where they found evidence of a "possible disorder".

Ms. Poncova and Mr. Taylor were in a short relationship, and a neighbor said he had recently moved into their home.

She and Mr. Taylor fell off the back of the nine-story skyscraper, where their apartment has several windows that open to the outside.

A tribute left by colleagues at the scene said: "You will always be remembered in our hearts and minds with love from your colleagues and friends at The Apartment Service."

Another said, "These sad times will never darken the good times we had. Will miss you sister. "

The police said that relatives have been informed and that an investigation is being initiated when they ask for information about the deaths.

A neighbor living on the same floor said that she saw Ms. Poncova and Mr. Taylor at 2:00 pm the day she fell.

The woman who asked not to be named said, "They were together on the lift, they came up, but I went downstairs.

Honors at the scene

"I just saw her walking the dog, we would meet at the lift, but I have not seen the dog for a long time.

"She seems nice, we did not really talk about anything, I know, she said she lost her job, it was Friday.

"I asked if she would go to work and she said no, but she did not seem to be upset.

"It's kind of shocking."

Colleagues have paid tribute to the woman

Detective Inspector Phil Coster said, "I appeal to everyone who knew Renata Poncova and Tony Taylor and had contact in the days before their death to call the police.

"I also have to talk to anyone who either witnessed the incident or saw something suspicious, either in the run-up to the deaths.

"Evidence in the apartment and a possible disturbance in the apartment before the case suggest suspicious circumstances exist.

"We need witnesses to get a picture of what happened before these deaths, if you know something, please call us."
