Police Scotland acknowledges the plea at the High Court in Aberdeen today (Monday March 12, 2018) of Mark Bruce in connection with the death of 20-year-old Chloe Miazek at a flat in the Rosemount Viaduct area of Aberdeen on November 3, 2017.
The following statement has been released along with a photograph of the 32-year-old. Detective Inspector Gary Winter, of the Major Investigation Team, said, "As a result of Bruce's actions Chloe's family have faced a living nightmare no family should ever have to suffer. Chloe was a bright young woman with her whole life ahead of her - a life that was cruelly cut short that night.
"It is difficult to find words to bring any comfort to such a tragic, needless situation however I can only hope that today's outcome and admission of guilt can help in some small way. My thoughts are with Chloe's family today."
The family of Chloe have released the following statement:
"We remain absolutely devastated following the death of our beautiful daughter and sister, Chloe.
"She was in the prime of her life and had so much to look forward to and it is difficult for us to comprehend that she is not here with us today.
"Chloe was a loving daughter to Bob and Theresa, sister to Nathan and friend to many, including at her work at Tesco in Inverurie.
"She will be sorely missed and we ask for privacy as we try to come to terms with her untimely death."
