Any chance of this being online or broadcast on World News? It seems like something tragic yet fascinating as I never heard from her. I must say from the clips here they stayed professional. I am surprised they identified her so quickly - was family notified?
I'm sure it will be on YouTube at some point soon.
EDIT: in fact here is is: https://youtu.be/8USNVv8jec8
She was identified by the neighbour who found her on her doorstep she mentioned her identity on the 999 call.
Of course that's not formal identification, but it was confirmed it was her and broadcast just over an hour later. I don't know what the rules and procedures are regarding notifying family, or how they work out who to contact, in this case her next of kin would have been her father. He wasn't featured (I assume he's not around any more) and there was no mention of them being told officially.
However when it's someone well known and it happens in broad daylight it's a little bit different, word spreads even in those pre-Twitter, pre smart phone days. Probably better to get it out there and confirm it.
It probably would have been different if she had children, you'd want them told properly and not via TV
