Police look for two “suspicious” teens in Emily Longley investigation

Hopefully anyone with any more information comes forward. Emily's family deserve to find out the truth.

UK police investigating the death of New Zealand teen Emily Longley in Bournemouth last month are seeking information about two teenagers seen “acting suspiciously” on the evening before she died.

Emily Longley, 17, was found dead at her boyfriends house on 7th May. Police said they were treating her death as unexplained, pending the result of toxicology reports.

The indications are that drugs were involved. Emily Longley had a history of drug and alcohol use in her native New Zealand. She had been sent to her Grandmother in Bournemouth for a fresh start.

In a statement, Inspector Neil Devoto, of Bournemouth police, said they were renewing their call for witnesses and anyone else with information about Emily’s movements before she died to come forward.

“We are extending our enquiries to a wooded area between Queenswood Avenue and Copsewood Avenue, Queens Park, Bournemouth near to the address in Queenswood Avenue where Emily was found on the morning of Saturday May 7,” he said.

“We are asking for information about two men described as in their late teens seen acting suspiciously in that area around 6pm the evening before she died, Friday May 6.”

Emily’s sometime boyfriend Elliot Turner, 19, and a 17-year-old have already been arrested on other undisclosed charges but released on bail.

UK media reports said the pair were understood to have spent time with Emily, known to her friends as ‘Barbie’, on the day before she died.

Newswarped hopes that the UK police find out the truth about Emily’s death so that her friends and family can grieve properly. Her body is still being held by police over a month since her death.
