A BRITISH millionairess owner of a famous strip club has been brutally murdered on holiday
Denise D'Courtenay, 60, was stabbed to death before being buried in bushes on a beach in the Dominican Republic.
Cops were last night hunting a rogue military policeman who had allegedly been stalking her.
Staff at Denise's hotel said they had seen her with Hector Amauris de la Cruz, in his early 30s, on the day she vanished.
The ex-model planned to retire next month from The Queen Anne in Vauxhall, South London, a haunt of footballers, soap stars and rappers.
She had been going to the Caribbean island for 20 years. Daughter Naomi Robinson, 39, said: "I will not rest until the person responsible is caught."
Dominican Republic authorities announced Wednesday an investigation into the death of a British national Denise D. Courtenay, 60, whose decomposed body was found in a grassy area near the town Cabarete, Sosúa (north).
Sosúa Police commander Nelson Diaz Araujo told the press of the ongoing investigation, but clarified that there are no arrests so far.
The coroner Freddy Salazar transferred the foreigner’s body for an autopsy to Regional Forensics in Santiago.
Courtnay’s body was found yesterday in the sector Playa Rocon, Cabarete by locals who found her by the smell and notified the Police.
A police source said the foreigner, who owned three apartments in Cabarete and Sosúa, had disappeared one week ago and prompted a search by agents and some residents.
