Neighbour Maria Weller told My London her late friend Eva, 45, was a carer in Brentford and would always offer her help whenever she could. Eva, who lived on a canal boat with her partner Leo, had an 11-year-old daughter who she would regularly visit. Police were called to the canal, which is a busy commuting and running route, at 6.48am to reports of a body in the water on Tuesday, April 27. The London Ambulance Service also attended but Eva was pronounced dead at the scene. “I last saw her a few days before she died and she comforted me as I was upset at that moment,” Maria said. “She was a gentle soul, she would not hurt a fly. She always had a smile on her face. “She would always offer her help and she would give you a hug if she thought you needed it. “She told me she had a daughter and she used to go and see her.” Emergency services at the canal where Eva was found (Image: Steve Haskett) Maria’s first thought when she read the news on Facebook that a body had been found in the canal that it would be Eva. Eva’s body was discovered close to where the boat she had been living on was moored. Following Eva being named locally as the deceased, Maria along with Eva’s friends laid a tribute where her body was found. Candles were put down along with messages from friends and flowers. “She would walk that tow path three times a day. She would go to the facilities to get water for the boat” added Maria, who has gone to the scene to lay flowers several times.

Eva. “Brentford will miss you.”
