POLICE have confirmed two men arrested on suspicion of murder in connection with the disappearance of Rui Li are father and son.
At 10.30pm yesterday, officers discovered a body in the boot of a silver Fiat Punto in Verwood Crescent, Bournemouth, which they believe to be that of the 44-year-old nurse.
A 60-year-old man and a 26-year-old man have both been arrested on suspicion of murder.
Detective Inspector Marcus Hester, of Dorset Police’s major crime investigation team, today confirmed the two suspects are father and son.
DI Hester said: “The relationship between the victim and the people in custody I am not able to discuss at the moment but what I can tell you is that we have a father and son in custody in regards to this matter.”
He added: “Yesterday evening at about 10.30pm we located a silver Fiat Punto in Verwood Crescent in the Bournemouth area and within that vehicle sadly we have found a deceased person.
“We strongly believe that that deceased person is the person we are looking for in Rui Li but no identification has taken place yet.”
The two men, who are known to Rui Li, have a connection with Cromer Motors on St Clements Road in Bournemouth, which DI Hester said is “central” to the investigation.
