A MAN has appeared in court in East London this morning charged with murder following the discovery of a woman’s body in a house by police investigating a road crash.

Officers discovered the body of 27-year-old Camille Mathurasingh at the house in Arrow Road, Bromley-by-Bow (pictured, above).

They were following up a crash three miles away in Whitechapel (top) in which a Nissan Micra careered out of control and flipped over on the A11 Whitechapel Road on Friday afternoon, at the traffic lights with Cambridge Heath Road, when they found Camille’s body at the house.

MULTIPLE STABBING

She had died from multiple stab wounds, according to a post mortem examination at Poplar Mortuary yesterday (Monday).

The Nissan driver was rescued from the crash on Friday afternoon and taken to the nearby Royal London Hospital with cuts to his face, neck and hands. He was detained for treatment, but not to be seriously hurt.

Police later charged 24-year-old Paul Hubert Bristol with Camille’s murder in the house at Arrow Street.

IN CUSTODY

Bristol, a Trinidad citizen, appeared before district judge Alison Rose at Thames Magistrates’ court at 10am. He was in London on a short-stay visitor’s permit, the court heard. Bristol, dressed in white T-shirt and white track suit bottom, was asked for his address and replied: “Not in this country.”

He was remanded in custody to appear at the Old Bailey on July 14. No application was made for bail by his lawyer.

An incident room was set up at Barking after the discovery of Camille Mathurasingh’s body at her home in Bromley-by-Bow. Police are appealing for anyone with information to contact Det Chief Ins Caroline Goode on 020-8345 3715.
