BEIRUT: Rebecca Dykes had been at a Foreign Office colleague's farewell party before she disappeared Friday night.Becky, as she was known to her friends, never made it home.Saturday afternoon, Lebanese authorities found the body of a woman in her 30s along the Emile Lahoud road, a major artery out of Beirut, with a rope around the neck and obvious signs of strangulation. An initial autopsy also showed signs of sexual assault, security sources told The Daily Star. After not hearing from Dykes, friends raised the alarm with police Sunday and it was quickly determined that the body was hers.A friend of Dykes described her to The Daily Star as both "ambitious and selfless".Investigative judges were at Demo bar late Sunday evening and sources confirmed that the owners had spoken with authorities.
