First picture of mother, 20, kidnapped and found stabbed to death in an abandoned car
- Kirsty Treloar was heard begging for mercy as she was dragged into a car
- Murder squad police hunting ex-boyfriend on the run since Monday morning
- Young mother 'killed by ex-boyfriend' who is also one-month-old's father
A manhunt was under way last night after a young mother was kidnapped from her home and stabbed to death.
The body of Kirsty Treloar, 20, who just a month ago had given birth to a baby girl, was found in an abandoned Fiat Stilo car yesterday morning.
Murder squad detectives were hunting for her ex-boyfriend after neighbours heard her begging for mercy as he dragged her into the vehicle.
The silver vehicle was found 90 minutes after she was snatched, with the young mother's body inside.
Her brother Dean, 22, and sister Gemma, 24, also suffered stab wounds as they tried to defend her at their family home in Haggerston, East London.
The baby girl was taken to hospital to be checked over by doctors.
This is the latest in a string of tragedies over the Christmas and New Year period.
Ruby Love, who had three children, was hit over the head and strangled before being dumped in a London canal on Christmas Day.
Her body was found an hour-and-a-half later a mile away, off Homerton High Street.
Her ex-boyfriend, who has not been named, is believed to be known to police.
Dean Treloar was in hospital last night in a stable condition. His sister was released after being treated for minor injuries.
Neighbours living on the same residential street described hearing a 'hysterical' cry coming from the property at around 6am yesterday.
Neighbour Robert Mead said he heard young mother Kirsty being dragged to the car early yesterday morning.
He said: 'I heard a window or bottle smash. There was a commotion and shouting.
'I heard the woman scream, 'Please, please, no, please', a car door slam shut, and then the screeching of tyres.'
A woman living close to the three-storey home described how she was woken at around 5.30am before hearing 'a female sounding extremely distressed'.
The woman, 45, who did not give her name, added: 'I don't know what woke me up.
'It was some time at around six or just after that I heard a noise. I thought it might be foxes fighting which can sound quite human.
'Then I thought, No, it's definitely not, it sounded like a young woman in distress. It was very short-lived and stopped quite abruptly.
'It sounded like she was a bit hysterical.'
Terry Tundervary, 58, a builder, said: 'They seemed to be a very friendly family. I used to say hello to the girl.
'If it's the girl I think it is, she's got a little baby.
