Main article content
Detectives investigating the murder of 10-year-old Sara Sharif in Woking are continuing to appeal for information to help them piece together a picture of Sara’s lifestyle prior to her death.
The renewed appeal has been issued two weeks after Sara’s body was found by officers at her home in Hammond Road, Woking, in the early hours on 10 August.
Detectives widened the timescale of their investigation after the post-mortem revealed that Sara had suffered multiple and extensive injuries, likely to have been caused over a sustained and extended period of time.
The initial appeal, which was launched on 18 August, has prompted a number of responses and detectives are reviewing all the information received so far as part of their ongoing enquiries.
However, we are still looking to speak to anyone who knew Sara, or with any information that could assist the investigation, no matter how insignificant it might seem.
Detective Superintendent Mark Chapman, from the Surrey Police and Sussex Police Major Crime Team, said: “It is now two weeks since Sara’s body was found and the impact of her tragic death continues to be felt deeply by the local and wider community, including our officers and staff.
“We would like to thank those people who have already come forward and reported information to us.
“However, we know that there will be lots of people in the Woking community and beyond who will have had contact with Sara who may not already have come forward, and we would encourage them to do so. Any information is better than no information - although you might think it’s insignificant, it might be vital to the investigation and in helping us to bring justice for Sara.”
