A woman stabbed to death at a hotel over the weekend has been named.

Khloemae Loy, 23, was found dead on Sunday morning after being stabbed in the neck at the Holiday Inn in Greenwich, south east London. A man in his 30s – who officers believe knew Ms Loy – fell from a height at the scene.

The hotel’s fifth floor was cleared after her body was discovered and a window appeared to have been smashed

The hotel’s general manager Umar Khattak, 38, previously said the man and woman involved in the incident checked in on Saturday.

While the hotel has been open during the pandemic to NHS staff at the nearby Nightingale hospital, Saturday was the first day it was open to non-key workers, Mr Khattak said.

He said the hotel had received calls from different guests about noise coming from a room.

Mr Khattak said police were called and officers moved all guests out of the fifth floor.

The second floor looks out on to the ledge where the man is believed to have fallen, Mr Khattak said.

The man has been arrested but remains in hospital in a critical condition. Murder police have launched an investigation but say they do not believe anyone else is involved at this stage.

A local, who did not want to be named, passed the scene while jogging and said emergency services gathered on a ledge on the second floor.
