Carole Waugh death: Woman bailed in fraud probe
A woman arrested by police investigating the death of oil executive Carole Waugh and alleged fraud committed using her identity has been released on bail.
Miss Waugh, who lived in Marylebone, vanished from a family party in April and her body was eventually found in a lock-up garage in New Malden, south-west London, on August 2.
A 63-year-old woman from Cheshunt, Hertfordshire, was arrested yesterday on suspicion of conspiracy to defraud. She was questioned at a south London police station and has been bailed until a date in October, Scotland Yard said.
A post-mortem examination found Miss Waugh had suffered a stab wound. Two people, Rakesh Bhayani, 40, and Nicholas Kutner, 47, have been charged with her murder.
Kutner, of no fixed address, also faces two charges relating to renting Miss Waugh’s property at Tressard Court in Marylebone, and one of unlawfully withdrawing funds from her bank account.
