Carole Waugh Murder: Body Confirmed As Oil Executive

A body found in a lock-up garage in New Malden, southwest London, has been formally identified as missing oil executive Carole Waugh.

Police have also confirmed that a post-mortem examination found that Ms Waugh had suffered a single stab wound. Further tests will take place to establish the exact cause of death.

The body was discovered in a blue Volkswagen Golf in a lock-up garage in Lime Court at 7pm on Thursday. Sky sources said the body was in the boot of the vehicle.

Ms Waugh, 50, an oil executive originally from Durham, had not been seen since mid-April.

Earlier this week, a 47-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of kidnap and conspiracy to defraud and subsequently on suspicion of murder. The suspect is in custody at a police station in south London.

Police are appealing for information about the car the body was found in. Read More
