Murder probe: Investigation continues into disappearance of Poole Hospital nurse Rui Li at three scenes

Bournemouth Echo: Murder probe: investigation continues at three sites into disappearance of Poole nurse Murder probe: investigation continues at three sites into disappearance of Poole nurse

POLICE are continuing to investigate the disappearance of a Poole nurse this morning, with a man arrested on suspicion of murder still being held.

Their efforts have so far focused on three scenes – a home in Burnham Drive, Queen’s Park, a house in Wolverton Road, Boscombe, and the Cromer Motors garage in St Clement’s Road, Boscombe.

It is believed that officers have seized items from the premises, including a computer, laptop and mobile phones.

Detectives are trying to build up a picture of the life of 44-year-old Rui Li, who was last seen leaving Poole Hospital, where she works, at around 6pm on Friday.

A 60-year-old man from Bournemouth has been arrested on suspicion of murder.

Forensics examinations were being carried out at all three addresses yesterday.

This morning, the home in Burnham Drive remains taped off, as does Cromer Motors. Security guards are keeping watch on all three scenes.

Speaking to the Daily Echo yesterday, DI Marcus Hester, of the Major Crime Investigation Team, said that he had hope that Rui was still alive, but developments in the investigation, which he said he couldn’t reveal, meant that detectives had serious concerns for her welfare.

He said that she had family in Boscombe, but said he could not reveal the nature of the relationship between Rui and the arrested man.

Police circulated a photograph of Rui, who is described as a slim woman of Chinese appearance and roughly 5ft 5in tall.

She sometimes wears glasses and often wears her shoulder-length black hair in a ponytail.

Anyone with information should call Dorset Police on 101, quoting Operation Timekeeper.

I'm sure we will soon see the cliché quotes from residents saying the usual "it's a quiet street, nothing like this happens around here, he kept himself to himself" that kind of thing.

I hope there is a positive outcome here, but seeing that the police already have a suspect for murder it's not looking good.

Umm I don't think anyone who lives in Boscombe will be saying their streets are quiet, since the local authority allows so many properties to offer accomodation to the people they don't want on the streets (4 within 1/2 square mile. Both roads mentioned in Boscombe are a nightmare!

Remember to accommodate as many 'c' s and 'm' s as possible.

Did not realise Wolverton Road is a nightmare ? Seems quiet enough. It is other side of Boscombe to St Clements.

Hey, scouse junkies have to live somewhere, and that caring man Dave Wells is providing them with the help they sorely need.
