Body find sparks murder investigation
Pardeep Kaur had been missing for six days
AN outpouring of grief from the community has followed the news that Pardeep Kaur from Hayes, who was found dead on Saturday, may have been murdered.
The 30-year-old had been missing for six days when her body was found by detectives on waste ground underneath the Harlington High Street flyover at around 4.30pm.
Ms Kaur was last seen at around 4pm on Sunday, October 16 in Harlington High Street, before she was reported missing when she did not turn up for work as a housekeeper at a hotel at Heathrow.
The Sikh Welfare and Awareness Team, based in Hayes, posted on Facebook on Sunday: “We are deeply saddened to hear of the news emerging of Pardeep Kaur. God bless her soul.”
Others have also posted on social media in the wake of the tragedy.
Sarah Haley said: “So sad. My heart goes out to all those affected.”
Commenting on a Sikh Awareness Society post, Babs Kaur said: “God bless her. RIP. My thoughts and prayers go out to her family and friends.”
Kuldip Matharoo said: “How sad and tragic.
“Her life should not have ended so soon.”
Two men, aged 30 and 31, were arrested on Wednesday October 19 in connection with the victim’s disappearance and have since been released with no further action.
No new arrests have been made but the Metropolitan Police say Ms Kaur’s death is being treated as suspicion and a murder investigation is under way.
Ms Kaur’s next of kin have been informed.
A post-mortem examination is due to take place in due course.
DCI Mark Lawson, from Major Crime Command, said: “At this early stage of the investigation I am appealing to any witnesses in the Carlton Avenue and Bedwell Gardens area who may have been driving to work to come forward as they may have seen Pardeep walking to work at about 6.30am on Monday, October 17.”
