Two women today described a man in his 50s behaving strangely had followed them to a secluded spot in the 250-acre park last week.

They claimed police had told them of similar reports about a man matching the same description.

The women told The Times: "We didn't know the victims but we felt we should leave flowers as this could well have been us.

We used to drive up here on nice days to go for a walk. We will not be doing that again knowing that the killer is still out there."


Solomon Tarekegn, who has lived in the area for 20 years, added: "It's early days, but it's scary to think about the fact that the person who did this is still out there. It's made me more cautious. You're looking over your shoulder more."

Other residents had spoken of finding knives in the woodland. No arrests have been made.

They were last seen by friends last Friday when Bibaa told of her plans to celebrate her birthday with a picnic at Fryent Country Park in Wembley, north west London.

The sisters, from Harrow and Brent, met with a group of people at the park at around 7pm last Friday evening and by midnight, only Nicole and Bibaa remained.

They were reported missing late on Saturday when they failed to return home and their bodies were discovered in the park the following day.

There have been no arrests, and police are appealing for help.

Senior investigating officer DCI Simon Harding said: "Both these women were stabbed multiple times and we are working tirelessly to find who is responsible.

"Their families have been devastated by their loss and they need and deserve answers. I need to hear from anyone who was in Fryent Country Park on the evening of Friday June 5, or early into Saturday June 6."


Devastated neighbours told how they saw mum-of-one Bibaa on her way to a picnic at Fryent Country Park in Wembley, North London, to celebrate her 46th birthday.

Horrified witnesses described hearing terrifying screams before emergency crews scrambled to the beauty spot.

On Monday, a bouquet of pink and white roses were left with a handwritten note to the "amazing" sisters.

Bibaa's neighbour who lives opposite Beeba’s flat, told how she was in "high spirits".

Mavis Osei-Frimpong, 52, said: "My daughter last saw her on Friday when Beeba said it was her birthday and she was going out to celebrate. She seemed happy as it was her birthday."

Flowers with messages in hand-drawn hearts were today left at the scene where their bodies were discovered.

The message, signed by "Jack" with a kiss, read “you were an amazing person” and “so funny.”

His tribute added: “You will be sadly missed.”

Witness Aditi Patel saw cops rushing to the scene on Sunday afternoon.

She said: "Two female officers arrived, briskly walking through Slough Lane entrance carrying first aid and what looked like a defibrillator.

"A man approached and told them he heard screams and that he could show them where to go."
