THE teenager who plunged 17 storeys to her death in Woolwich has been formally identified as Shanice-Paris Goff. At around 9.30am on April 10 two plain clothes police attended an address in Hastings House, Mulgrave Road to carry out a routine arrest enquiry regarding a recall to prison.

This was a pre-planned arrest enquiry and the officers who called at the address were allowed entry.

Shortly after they entered 18-year-old Shanice-Paris of Beddington Road, St Paul’s Cray, fell from a bedroom window on the 17th floor. Initial information suggests she was in the room alone. She was pronounced dead at the scene.

An inquest will open and adjourn at 9.30am on April 17 at Greenwich Coroner’s Court.

A 19-year-old man was arrested by officers at the scene on suspicion of assisting an offender and was taken to a south London police station.

He has now been bailed to return in early June pending further inquiries.

The Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) Directorate of Professional Standards (DPS) has been informed and is investigating.

The Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) has been informed.
