Police in appeal following woman’s murder

Metropolitan Police officers investigating the murder of Sabina Nessa have released details of the route she was travelling at the time of the attack in the hope that any further witnesses will come forward.

Detectives understand that Sabina, aged 28, left her home address on Astell Road, SE3 just before 8:30pm on Friday, 17 September.

It is believed that she was making her way through Cator Park towards The Depot bar on Pegler Square, Kidbrooke Village where she planned to meet a friend.

Sabina never arrived at the pub and is thought to have been murdered as she walked through the park.

Her body was found close to the OneSpace community centre within the park at around 5.30pm the following day.

A murder investigation was immediately launched, led by Detective Inspector Joe Garrity. He said: “Our investigation is making good progress and specialist officers remain at the crime scene carrying out intensive searches and enquiries.

“We are incredibly grateful for all of those who have so far come forward and spoken to us but we believe there are still others out there who may have information that could help. If you think you saw Sabina or any suspicious behaviour in or around the park on Friday evening please speak to us.

“Sabina’s journey should have taken just over five minutes but she never made it to her destination. We know the community are rightly shocked by this murder – as are we – and we are using every resource available to us to find the individual responsible.”

A post-mortem examination carried out at Greenwich Mortuary on Monday, 20 September was inconclusive.

Anyone with information should call the incident room on 0208 721 4266 or Crimestoppers completely anonymously on 0800 555 111.
