A murder investigation has been launched following the discovery of the body of a missing woman in a shallow grave in Kew.

French national, Laureline Garcia-Bertaux, (34) was reported missing after she did not turn up for work at public relations firm Golin, on Monday.

Police said her body was found in a garden in Darell Road in Kew on Wednesday. A murder investigation has been launched and there have been no arrests.

The family of Ms Garcia-Bertaux, who lived in Richmond upon Thames, have been told about the discovery.

A forensic crime scene is in place on Darell Road and a post-mortem examination will be held.

Ms Garcia-Bertaux was last seen on Saturday in a supermarket in the Manor Circus area.

Police had said her disappearance was "out of character".

According to the BBC, one neighbour said that as far as he knew she lived in the ground-floor flat alone. A local said he had seen her walking her dogs with a "scruffy looking" man.

Another neighbour said others on the street had seen a man visiting the property "now and again", but added, "I did not see her very much."
