A second man has been arrested in connection with the death of Anita Kapoor, whose body was discovered on Tuesday 23rd June 2015 in a lay-by on the A413, Amersham Road at Gerrards Cross in Buckinghamshire.

On Thursday 24th June 2015 a Home Office post mortem was carried out and cause of death has been given as asphyxiation, due to compression of the neck.

On Tuesday 23rd June 2015 Police officers arrested a 50 year old man from Hayes on suspicion of murder. He has since been released without charge.

During the night of Wednesday 24th June 2015 a second man, a 34 year old from Southall, West London was arrested at an address in West London on suspicion of murder. He is currently in police custody. An address in Southall is being examined as part of the investigation.

Det Supt Gill Wootton, said: ‘We would like to speak to anyone who recognises Anita and knows of her whereabouts between 3.00am on Tuesday [23rd June 2015], when she was last seen in Oswald Road, Southall, West London, and 8.36am on Tuesday [23rd June 2015] when her body was found in Gerrards Cross.

When last seen, she is believed to have been wearing a black, thigh length coat with zips at the sides, black tracksuit bottoms with white writing down the sides, elasticated at the bottom and white, Reebok trainers. We would appeal to anyone who has knowledge of Anita or her movements in the early hours of the 23rd June [2015] to contact the investigation team.

Our priorities are to identify and arrest those responsible for Anita’s death and support her family at this difficult time.
