Woman found dead in suitcase named as 41-year-old who disappeared month ago

A body found dead inside a suitcase at a West London hostel has been identified as a 41-year-old woman last seen alive on November 20.

Joanna Borucka, 41, was found dead at hostel Pay And Sleep in Southall, west London, shortly before 3pm on Friday December 18.

Neighbours had reported a foul smell the Metropolitan Police, who later discovered Joanna's body inside a suitcase.

Police believe she was last seen alive on November 20 and residents at the hotel said her boyfriend had gone missing shortly after she vanished, it has been reported.

Detective Chief Inspector Wayne Jolley, of the Metropolitan Police's Specialist Crime Command, said the death is likely to "come as a shock" to those that knew her.

He 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 inquiry.

"There is a gap between when we believe Joanna was last seen and when her body was found."

Mr Jolley added that it is important for the force to "speak to anyone who has information" about Joanna's "recent movements."

The detective said: 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."
