A murder investigation was launched after Hang Yin Leung, 64, became unwell following a burglary at her home in Bolbeck Park.

Mrs Leung was admitted to hospital the following day and she sadly died in hospital on Saturday, February 11.

Today Thames Valley Police is appealing for information about items stolen from Mrs Leung’s home during the violent robbery.

Detective superintendent Simon Steel, said: “During the burglary an Oyster model gold Rolex watch, belonging to Mrs Leung’s husband, was stolen.

“Both Mrs Leung and her husband were former officers with Hong Kong Police.

“Her long service medal was stolen during the incident. The medal has a depiction of the Queen on one side and Hang Yin Leung’s rank and shoulder number WPC 15037 inscribed on the back.”

Hong Kong identity cards belonging to Hang Yin Leung and her husband were also stolen, as was a Louis Vuitton handbag together with cash – sterling and Hong Kong dollars.

Some items belonging to Mrs Leung have been recovered in Aylesbury.

Det Supt Steel added: “I also need to hear from anyone who was in Aylesbury between about 6.30pm and 9.40pm on January 31, who may have seen items being thrown out of a vehicle travelling along Weedon Road.

“Mrs Leung’s purse and bank cards were found strewn across the pavement and into a garden in the Weedon Road and Cromwell Drive area.

“These criminals targeted a frail woman in her own home, a place she should have been safe.

“The group of burglars had a choice that night – they could have simply walked away once they realised the house was not empty but instead they chose to force their way in to a family home.

“They made a choice to use violence against Hang, who was a businesswoman, a wife, and a mother; stealing her possessions and her life.

“It is vitally important that you come forward if you have any information which could help our investigation.”

No one has been arrested in connection with the investigation.

Anyone with any information should contact the police enquiry centre on 101 quoting URN 210 2/3.
