Human remains found in park being searched in connection with missing Agnes Akom


HUMAN remains have been found by officers searching a park for missing Agnes Akom (above).

Twenty-year-old Agnes, also known as ‘Dora’ — a Hungarian national who moved to the UK three years ago — left her home address in the Cricklewood Broadway area of Cricklewood, north London, on the morning of Sunday, May 9 and was reported missing on Tuesday, May 11, this year.

Agnes was not seen or heard from since the day of her disappearance.

It is believed she had been a sex worker in London. The grim discovery was made yesterday in Neasden Recreation Park which was being searched in connection with her disappearance since last month.

A Met Police spokesman said: "While we await forensic identification, the family of Agnes Akom have been informed of this development. They are being supported by specially trained officers.

"Officers are not discussing the circumstances of the discovery any further at this stage."

Detective Chief Inspector Neil John, senior investigating officer from the Met’s Specialist Crime North, said: “The discovery of human remains by my colleagues searching the area is both shocking and deeply disturbing for everyone concerned, in particular for Agnes’s family who continue to be supported by specialist officers. I request that their privacy is respected as this very difficult time. “I expect my team and forensic colleagues to remain at Neasden Recreation Park for some days to come as they maintain the scene and complete their site examinations.

“I would like to thank the local community for their patience as we continue with our enquiries in the recreation ground.”

Neculai Paizan, 63, was last month charged with her murder and appeared at the Old Bailey on May 26 when the case was adjourned.
