A renewed appeal for information and £3000 reward is being offered to trace the killer of a Polish model murdered eight years ago. 

Beata Bryl, 23, whose last known address was in Walthamstow, was found bludgeoned to death and her body set alight in woodland near Hedsor Lane in Wooburn Green, Buckinghamshire, in 2006.

A day before her burning corpse was discovered on July 29, she was seen boarding a westbound train at Leytonstone station. 

An inquest following her death revealed she had been beaten over the head at least twenty times and her injuries were so severe, it took police a month to identify the Polish national.  

Detective Inspector Colin Seaton, leading the case has said there is no link between Miss Bryl and Buckinghamshire. 

"We have not managed to establish any sort of link between Beata and Buckinghamshire.

"We hypothesise that Beata's body was taken from somewhere else and that was the actual deposition site where her body was left," said DI Seaton.

She was employed in London as a waitress having moved to the UK after working as a model in Germany. 

Crimestoppers is now offering a reward of up to £3000 for information that will lead to the arrest and conviction of the person or those responsible for her death. 

Crimestoppers Regional Manager, Julia Hughes, said: "This is an absolutely horrific ordeal that this poor woman has gone through and I cannot begin to imagine the pain she suffered.

"The person or people responsible for her murder have carried out one of the worst acts of violence I have heard of in my time at Crimestoppers, and I would urge anyone with information to please come forward anonymously, safe in the knowledge you will never be identified." 

The 23-year-old had worked as a model in Germany. She was later employed in London as a waitress.
