The case of mum Janelle Duncan-Bailey, found dead this weekend, is to be looked at by the police watchdog.
The Metropolitan Police referred the case to the Independent Police Complaints Commission after concerns over officers' contact with the Thornton Heath care worker, whose body is believed to have been found in the boot of her car in Mayfield Crescent on Saturday.
The 25-year-old, of Pawsons Road, had left her ex-partner's home in the early hours of January 2 with police officers who had been called to the house.
She was last seen walking towards her friend's flat in Limpsdale Avenue.
A spokeswoman for the Met Police said: "Following concerns about officers' contact with Janelle Duncan-Bailey, the Metropolice Police referred the case to the Independent Police Complaints Commission on the morning of January 4.
"It would be inappropriate for us comment further at this time."
