A woman’s body found in Devon woodland has been identified as a missing Londoner.
Body of headless woman found in Devon woodland has been identified. Mee Kuen Chong, 67, was last seen on 10th June in the capital and was reported as missing the following day to Met Police. She had been living in Wembley since 2004 but was originally from Malaysia.
Police are describing her death as “unexplained”. A senior source however explained her body was found headless. A spokesman for the force said Wednesday “Police are investigating the circumstances around Mrs Chong’s death and are now appealing for information from the public to help trace her last movements.
They are particularly keen to hear from anyone who may have seen Mrs Chong between Thursday June 10 and Sunday June 27. This would include any hotels or bed and breakfast accommodation where she may have stayed and also from anyone who knows why she was in Salcombe.
A number of inquiries will be carried out in Salcombe over the coming days, and it is likely that the local community will continue to see a high level of police activity. Police would like to reassure the public that while this discovery may cause some concerns in the community, the heightened police presence is to investigate all of the circumstances.”
