Detectives have released CCTV footage of a man suspected of murdering a sex worker in Earls Court.
A manhunt was launched to find Robert Richard Fraser after the body of Maria Duque-Tunjano was found on Friday.
The footage of Fraser, also known as Robert Aleem and Shia Robert Jackson, was recorded in central London on Sunday.
Police believe the suspect could still be in the central or northwest London area.
The investigation was launched after police were called to a flat in Earls Court Square on Friday lunchtime.
The body of Miss Duque-Tunjano had been there for several days and a post-mortem examination found her death came after a blunt blow to her head.
Miss Duque-Tunjano, 48, was a British national originally from Colombia.
She lived in Streatham but used the flat in Earls Court Square for her work.
It is believed she was robbed of a quantity of cash during the assault.
Police think there could be a link to a non-fatal attack on another female sex worker In Paddington on January 18.
Detective Chief Inspector Nicola Wall said: "We have established that Maria was last seen alive on Tuesday, January 28.
"We also understand she was in the company of a man and our primary focus is to trace him as part of this investigation.
"It is now our belief that this man was also responsible for an attack on another female sex worker in Paddington.
"It is imperative that we trace him as soon as possible.
"We have spoken to organisations with links to those who work in the sex industry to make them aware of this incident and pass on the message that personal safety of sex workers is of paramount importance."
Fraser is known to suffer from mental health issues.
Anyone who spots him should dial 999 or if you know his whereabouts contact the incident room on 020 8785 8244 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
