Twenty-one-year-old Teddi Baker Pic: Metropolitan Police

The Metropolitan Police are appealing for any witnesses to a fight that took place in Tower Hamlets as part of an investigation into the death of a young woman.  

Teddi Baker, 21, was found unconscious at a residential address in Limehouse at around 8am on February 8, when emergency responders rushed to the scene, but despite best efforts Baker was pronounced dead at the scene.

The Met’s appeal for witnesses is in an attempt to establish the exact circumstances leading to her death. 

The fight is said to have happened between 10pm and 12.30am near the Dod Street alleyway that leads to Limehouse Cut canal.  

Officers believe that the incident involved a group of up to six people, one being Baker. 

A woman in her 20s was arrested on suspicion of murder in connection with Baker’s death but has been released on bail and set to return at a later date. 

The exact cause of death has yet to be revealed as the police are awaiting post-mortem results. 

Detective Inspector Sufia Matin of Tower Hamlets CID said: “This was an extremely tragic incident and we must investigate it thoroughly to understand exactly what has happened leading up to Teddi’s death. 

“We are urging anyone who has any information or who may have witnessed a fight in the Dod Street area of Limehouse/Poplar during the times stated, to contact us immediately.” 

Anyone with information is asked to contact the police on 101 or @MetCC via X quoting CAD 1469/08FEB24.  

Alternatively, anyone wishing to leave information anonymously can call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.  

Matin added: “We owe it to Teddi and her family to find out what happened and you could hold vital information we may need.” 

Baker’s next of kin are currently being supported by specialist officers.
