A wealthy woman appears to have been stabbed in the neck and murdered in her central London flat, a court heard today. Prosecutor Patrick Gibbs said that Carole Waugh seemed to have been killed on or by her bed. He added:
In all likelihood she was killed in her bedroom, wrapped in whatever was to hand, and then later crammed into a large holdall, put in the boot of an old car, and left in various car parks.
It looks as if her killers were hoping to dispose of the body in a secluded spot in the Cotswolds, but seem to have thought better of it and used a garage in New Malden, which had been rented for the purpose.
