British tourist murdered, say police
POLICE searching for a 22-year-old British woman missing in New Zealand have launched a murder investigation and a 26-year-old man is being questioned, investigators said yesterday.
Grace Millane, who was travelling the world after finishing university, went missing a week ago. She had arrived in New Zealand on November 20 and was last seen on December 1 in central Auckland.
“Our investigation has determined that Grace is no longer alive and this is a murder investigation,” Detective Inspector Scott Beard told a televised press conference.
Beard said that the man, who had been seen with Millane at several places, is “speaking to us in relation to the murder of Grace Millane”.
He said that the Millane family was “devastated”. |
