Police investigating the killing of Wellington woman Rongmei
Fan are appealing for sightings of a brown Toyota Corona
vehicle on the last day she was seen alive.
Ms Fan, 37, who was known as Mei, was found dead in her home
in Miramar two days after she dropped her young children off
at school on November 8.
Detective Senior Sergeant John van den Heuvel said police
wanted to hear from anyone who had seen a brown Toyota Corona
sedan with a missing hub cap on the front passenger side, in
Miramar or anywhere else in Wellington, on November 8.
"We're not making any assumptions as to who was driving the
vehicle so we are also interested in any information about
the occupants, what they were doing and what were they
wearing," he said.
Ms Fan's brother Fan Rong Cheng, uncle Fan Mao Cai and aunt
Fan Su Lan arrived in Wellington from China late last month.
During a press conference they described her as a beautiful
daughter and a caring mother.
"We were shocked and shaken to learn that far away in New
Zealand one of our relatives, Mei, was killed in a violent
attack. It is beyond belief and beyond comprehension," the
Police also wanted to know more about the movements of Ms
Fan's red 2005 Honda Fit hatchback car, registration GSL128,
any time on November 8.
Anyone with information was asked to call the dedicated phone
number established for the inquiry, 0800 348 348.
