A senior HSBC bank clerk has been found hanged a day after fleeing a court where she was due to be sentenced for stealing £120,000.
A man, believed to be Bindi Dhanji's husband, was also found hanging from a footbridge over the North Circular Road in north London early on Wednesday.
Judge Anthony Pitts issued a warrant for 31-year-old Dhanji's arrest after she fled Southwark Crown Court.
Dhanji, of North Circular Road, Neasden, had admitted theft charges.
She was facing up to six years in jail after earlier admitting two counts of theft by an employee.
On Tuesday her defence lawyer Richard Parry said she arrived at the court with her husband and he last saw her shortly after 1130 GMT.
She "clearly seems to have panicked", Mr Parry told the court.
A Metropolitan Police spokesman said the bodies of a man and woman were found near the A406 Staples Corner at 0640 GMT on Wednesday.
He said: "The bodies were found hanging from a footbridge.
"We believe we know the identities of the deceased and next of kin have been informed."
