    The body of missing Bournemouth nurse, Rui Li, age 44, has been discovered in the trunk of a car in Verwood Crescent, near Hengistbury Head, Friday May 30th.

    Rui Li was last seen Friday May 23rd by her daughter when she returned home from work. CCTV showed her leaving Poole hospital in her Porsche Boxter.

    Two men, aged 26 and 60, have been arrested on suspicion of murder. Now police are appealing for anyone with any info about the car Rui Li's body was found in to come forward.

    It's a Silver Fiat Punto, plate number W887 PDL.

    It may have been in the area of St Clements Rd and Knyveton Rd in Boscombe between Sunday 25th and Wednesday 28th May. It's also thought to have travelled between Verwood and Hengistbury Head on May 28th.

    Police also need information about a white Ford Transit, plate number Y491 GFT, that may have been in the area of Burnham Drive between Saturay May 24th and Tuesday the 27th.

    Contact Dorset Police on 101 with any info. Or online here: http://www.dorset.police.uk/

    Rui Li's husband has just been charged with her murder. That's who the 60 year-old suspect is. Named as Pierre Legris.

    The 26 year-old suspect is said to be his son but there is no mention of Rui Li being his mother. Though it's still terrible that a stepson is a suspect. He hasn't been charged but police have been given extra time to question him and he's still in custody. Hasn't been named yet.

    Police are still appealing for anyone who saw the vehicles last week to come forward.

    Police have done the usual thing of making it absolutely clear there won't be any comment or further information until the trial, so it looks like there will be little more to report for months.

    Myself, I think there may be some previous history or incidents here; one of the earliest reports hints that police effectively began a murder investigation the moment Rui Li's daughter reported her missing, because of 'information received'.

    I am assuming Rui Li and her husband had separated, as they have different addresses. Rui Li came to the UK from China 10 years ago. I don't know if she was already married then, or met her husband in the UK.

    Well, a 60 year-old French national, Alain Pierre Legris, runs the Cromer Motors police kept speaking about in connection with Rui Li's disappearance.

    But it looks like up until four years ago, he was married to someone else.

    I wonder if money is going to be a factor here? A Porsche Boxter is quite an expensive car for someone on a nurse's salary, isn't it?

    Yes, that is the murder suspect's garage. Father and son team.

    I won't be surprised if the Fiat Rui Li was found in proves to have been sold some time ago and no new owner was registered.....

    'Funny and so unique, she was totally reliable, professional and conscientious to a tee. She is terribly missed by all of us.

    Her nature was gentle and serene and that is part of the reason we and the patients love her so much.'

    The above was a tribute from staff at Poole Hospital where Rui Li worked. So sad.


    The Mail also has the first picture I have seen of the husband charged with her murder.

    They have all been sentenced the same day. Pierre Legris got a life sentence (his lawyer told the court he has cancer that has 'degenerated'). His other wife Irene Smith received three years, and their son Jonathan received two, for assisting an offender. It was the son who broke down under questioning and told police the location of the car with Rui Li's body.

    Interesting comments at that link from locals who seem to know the convicted.
