Who was Dolet Hill ?
One of the three women stabbed to death along with a man in south east London was working at a local NHS hospital today and was undergoing treatment for cancer, the MailOnline can reveal.
A relative of Grandma Dolet Hill, 64, confirmed that she was one of four people found dead in a terraced house in Bermondsey in the early hours of this morning, along with a woman in her 40s and another in her 30s. .
Her niece said Hill had two daughters and two grandchildren, while locals said she worked as a housekeeper at nearby Guy’s Hospital in Southwark.
A neighbor said: ‘She was a lovely lady, she worked at Guy’s Hospital as a housekeeper. She was also undergoing treatment for cancer. I can’t believe this happened.
I live near her and I didn’t hear anything until I saw all the police this morning outside her house. I know that she has two daughters. My heart goes out to her family. It’s such a horrible, horrible thing to happen.
Another added: ‘My friend knew Dolet because she used to work with her at Guy’s Hospital. She was originally from Jamaica but had been living there for a while.
“I couldn’t see what happened, but from my house I could see that the police and paramedics had taken at least two of the victims out onto the street and were working on them for some time.”
Mrs Hill’s niece, Venice Reid, paid tribute, saying she “didn’t deserve this”, telling reporters near the scene: “She was very loving, very kind, very generous.” She worked very hard in this country to support her two daughters and her two grandchildren. She doesn’t deserve this.
Metropolitan Police Chief Superintendent Colin Wingrove said today the other three victims are believed to include a man in his 60s, along with a woman in her 40s and another in her 30s.
Other neighbors revealed how they heard bloodcurdling screams before armed police rushed into the house and made the grim discovery. Detectives were called around 1:40 a.m. to report a disturbance on the property, before forcing entry and discovering four people with stab wounds.
A man in his 20s was arrested on suspicion of murder and taken to a police station where he remains in custody. Specialized criminal police are investigating and said they believe the five people knew each other.
A resident heard a woman ‘scream for about five minutes’ and added: ‘It was horrible. I thought someone was holding someone hostage or something, but when I heard the police, the helicopter, the ambulances, I knew it was really serious. I saw about eight or nine police cars, all armed, come out and surround the area.
Police placed a large cordon that included metal grating around Delaford Road as their investigation continued on the street. Four forensic shops were set up outside the £600,000 house in the London Borough of Southwark.
Another neighbor said: ‘I saw a load of policemen jump out of their cars with guns. There were about eight police cars, several ambulances, and some going door to door.
They came to the back garden to make sure our gate was secure. It was around 2 am. We didn’t hear anything else, they just told us to stay inside. My husband said that he swore he heard screaming, screaming, some commotion.
It comes as London Mayor Sadiq Khan continues to face questions about crime rates in the capital, with boxer Amir Khan saying last week he should “stick the finger” after his £72,000 watch was stolen in Leyton.
Scotland Yard opened 79 murder investigations last year related to stabbings, of which 27 were teenagers.
Ms Birkett, whose back room overlooks the property where the victims were found, also told the PA news agency: “It’s devastating – you hear all this but you never assume it will be right on your own doorstep.”
“I’m a foster carer and I have children in my care, and now I have to protect them now because of what happened.”
Another neighbor said: ‘I woke up because I could hear the helicopter; At first I had no idea what it was. It’s crazy that something like this would have happened here.
Another local resident who lives two doors down from the house where the incident occurred said he saw ambulances taking victims away in the early hours.
“I saw the bodies come out,” the elderly woman, who did not want to be named, told the PA news agency.
Like other local residents, she said police sirens and the sound of a helicopter woke her up in the night.
The woman, who lives on the corner of Delaford Road and Bramcote Grove, said she knew “him and her”.
Armed police are said to have gone from house to house to make sure neighbors were safe.
Despite efforts by emergency services, all four people were pronounced dead at the scene and officers are now in the process of contacting relatives. Post-mortem examinations will be arranged in due course.
Delaford Road is located in the SE16 postcode area next to South Bermondsey railway station and is also close to Millwall FC’s The New Den ground.
London Mayor Sadiq Khan tweeted today: “I am heartbroken that three women and one man were killed last night in a devastating incident at an address in Southwark. My thoughts are with the family and friends who have lost loved ones in this horrible crime.
‘Our team worked closely with colleagues from other emergency services. Unfortunately, despite the best efforts of our doctors, four patients died at the scene.
“The police have arrested someone, but it is still very important that people give information, whatever information they have, to the police so that whoever committed this horrible crime can be brought to justice.Local MP Harriet Harman described the killings as a “terrible tragedy”, telling reporters at the scene: “Tragically, four people have died and it’s shocking that it happens anywhere, but especially in this very peaceful, quiet community. and very settled.
