Operation Brussels: New developments to be revealed tonight


Thursday, 27 March 2014 - 1:44pm

Wellington

Wellington Police are hoping that new developments to be featured on the TV show Police Ten-7 tonight will lead to the killer of Mei FAN being identified.

Police believe Mei Fan was fatally stabbed in her Miramar home on Friday 8 November after dropping her two children off at the local Miramar Central School. Her body was discovered by friends who were concerned about her on Sunday 10 November when a homicide inquiry was launched by Police.

Police continue to appeal to the public for any sightings of anyone acting suspiciously in the Brussels Street area on Friday 8 November or sightings of a 1992 bronze-coloured Toyota Corona with a black strip along the bottom of the doors which was also missing the front left hubcap.

Police have previously released details of the murder weapon found in the scene which is a 32 centimetre knife with a wooden handle with the word 'CARVER' stamped into the base. Previous appeals have established that the knife was featured as part of a supermarket promotion in the early 90s so is relatively common.

The knife used to kill Mei Fan, however, has several distinctive features including a missing third rivet in the handle, unusual scrapes from being sharpened and a bent tip of the blade. It is possible the knife, which was originally part of a set, may have been disposed of as part of a deceased person's estate, sold in a garage sale or been donated to a second-hand or charity store. Police would like to hear from anyone who recognises these features of the knife.

Anyone with any information can contact the dedicated 0800 number for the inquiry which is 0800 348 348. Information can also be provided anonymously by contacting the Crimestoppers organisation on 0800 555 111.
