Detectives from the Metropolitan Police have released more details regarding a body found that was found at an address in Southall last week.
Joanna Borucka was 41 years old and originally from Poland.
On Friday 18th December at 14:53 hours, response team officers were called to ‘Pay and Sleep’ in Southall after the body of a woman had been found inside a suitcase.
A post-mortem examination has since been carried out on Ms Borucka, but at this stage, a specific cause of her death has not been confirmed.
Detectives believe Joanna was last seen on Friday 20 November and are keen to hear from anyone who has information about her disappearance or the circumstances that led to her death.
No arrests have yet been made.
Detective Chief Inspector Wayne Jolley, of the Met’s Specialist Crime Command (Homicide), said:
“News of Joanna’s death will no doubt come as a shock to those who knew her, particularly so given the circumstances in which her body was found.
“We continue to keep an open mind and are considering all possible lines of enquiry. There is a gap between when we believe Joanna was last seen and when her body was found.
“It’s important that we are able to speak to anyone who has information about her recent movements. If you know what she was doing, who she was with or anything else – no matter how small – please get in touch.”
