    The suspect has been described as white, short, about 20-years-old, with a dark complexion and dark hair. He was wearing black clothing and spoke with an English accent.

    I guess they mean mixed race? Just overly politically correct, although calling a mixed race person white with dark complexion could probably be seen as more offensive.

    Perhaps by dark complexion they meant dark facial features eg dark eyes or perhaps he was tanned? :dontknow:

    Anyway how horrific. Ashamed to say I don't even live that far from Romford. Poor woman, why anyone would do that is beyond me.
