THE woman whose body was found in a suitcase in a hostel last week has been named by police.
Joanna Borucka, 41, was found dead at Pay And Sleep in Southall, west London, shortly before 3 pm on Friday, December 18.
Detectives believe she was last seen alive on November 20, and residents at the hostel in The Crescent claim her boyfriend had gone missing since she vanished.
A post mortem examination has been carried out on Ms. Borucka, but the cause of her death has not yet been confirmed.
Detective Chief Inspector Wayne Jolley, of the Metropolitan Police’s Specialist Crime Command, said: “News of Joanna’s death will no doubt come as a shock to those who knew her, particularly so given the circumstances in which her body was found.
“We continue to keep an open mind and are considering all possible lines of inquiry. There is a gap between when we believe Joanna was last seen and when her body was found.
“It’s important that we are able to speak to anyone who has information about her recent movements. If you know what she was doing, who she was with or anything else – no matter how small – please get in touch.”
