Police quiz woman over fraud after Carole Waugh death

Police investigating the death of oil executive Carole Waugh are questioning a woman on suspicion of conspiracy to defraud.

Miss Waugh, whose brother Chris Waugh lives at Stainton, near Penrith, was found with a single stab wound inside a car at a garage south-west London, on August 2.

Scotland Yard said the 61-year-old woman arrested yesterday is in custody at a south London police station.

Ms Waugh, 50, was reported missing by her family on May 7. They last saw her at a family party in mid-April.

She had lived and worked in Libya for a number of years, but returned to London in 2008 and would regularly visit relatives in Cumbria.

So far, 11 people have been arrested in connection with the inquiry into Miss Waugh’s disappearance.

Two men have been arrested on suspicion of murder. Rakesh Bhayani, 40, of Chamberlayne Avenue, Wembley, was held on Thursday and is still being questioned.

Nicholas David Kutner, 47, of no fixed address, was arrested on suspicion of murder and kidnap last week.

He also faces two charges relating to renting her property at Tressard Court and a fourth of unlawfully withdrawing funds from Ms Waugh’s bank account.

Kutner is also facing a fraud charge after being accused of pretending to be Chris Waugh in a bid to sell her London home. He is in custody ahead of an appearance at Southwark Crown Court on Monday connected to that charge.
