Police urge public not to give to donations page on popular website

People are being urged not to give donations to a site set up in memory of a murdered Aberdeen woman.

A donations page for Chloe Miazek has been set up on the website but it has not been authorised by relatives.

The body of Ms Miazek, 20, from Kemnay near Inverurie, was discovered after police were called to a property in the Rosemount Viaduct area of the city at around 7.40am on Friday.

Detective Inspector Gary Winter from Police Scotland’s major investigations team said: “This fundraising page is not connected to relations of Chloe Miazek and has caused unnecessary further distress to a family trying to come to terms with her death.

“We have contacted the website to make them aware of our concerns.

“In the meantime I would ask people not to donate to this fundraising page and to share this message to prevent others from donating to it.”

A 32-year-old man has been arrested and charged in connection with her death.

He is expected to appear at Aberdeen Sheriff Court today (Monday).
