Back­packer mur­dered

The Sunday Times - - WORLD -

A BRI­TISH back­packer miss­ing in New Zealand since last week­end was mur­dered, po­lice say.

Po­lice said they were ques­tion­ing a man, 26, about the sus­pected slay­ing of Grace Mil­lane, 22, and a ve­hi­cle of in­ter­est had been se­cured.

“Sadly the ev­i­dence we have gath­ered to this point of the in­quiry has es­tab­lished that this is a homi­cide,” Det-Insp. Scott Beard said.

“We still do not know where Grace is. We are de­ter­mined to . . . re­turn her to her fam­ily.”
