POLICE Scotland have asked the public not to donate to a fundraising page set up in the name of the family of a 20-year-old woman who was found dead in a flat in Aberdeen on Friday.
Police say the fundraising site www.youcaring.com was not set up by the the family of Chloe Miazek from Kenmay near Inverurie, and that they have contacted the people behind the page to make them aware of their concerns.
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.
“I would ask people not to donate to this fundraising page and to share this message to prevent others from donating to it.”
Police Scotland was alerted to concerns for a woman within a property at a block of flats in the Rosemount Viaduct area of Aberdeen at around 7.40am on Friday, 3 November.
A 32-year-old man has been charged in connection with her death and is anticipated to appear at Aberdeen Sheriff Court on Monday (6 November).
