The bodies of a mother and her son have been found dead at their apartment home in Canary Wharf, East London.
Yulia Gokcedag, 35, and her 7 year old son, Timur, were found by police on the 13th August, a day after they were reported missing.
Mrs Gokcedag had lived in a private complex just off Locksfield Place on the Isle of Dogs. She had a first floor apartment in the gated community.
She worked for Moody’s Investors Service and had lived there for a few years. Detectives from the Met’s Specialist Crime Unit are treating the case as a murder/suicide and are not searching for anyone else in relation to the deaths.
It appears from Mrs Gokcedag’s social media sites that she had worked as a data analyst for Moody’s since March 2019 and her previous work had included a branch of Barclays bank and as a marketer for an investment bank.
She moved from Moscow, where she had studied finance, to London to take an English course at London’s School of Economics and her resume stated that she was able to work with high investment clients and hedge funding. A spokesman for Scotland Yard said that the officers called to the scene found Mrs Gokcedag hanging and her son had died from drowning. An inquest into their deaths it scheduled to start in December.
