British Police call for witnesses in relation to the murder of a baby girl in Aldershot

London- The Hampshire Constabulary of the UK have relaunched their appeal for information relating to the murder of a new born baby girl in Aldershot in May 2017.

Officers are starting a fresh round of house to house enquiries near to the scene as part of their continued investigation by the Major Crime team. “We are also in a position to release further detail relating to the ancestry of the baby and her parents, also how she died. In addition there is a piece of CCTV footage of two people we are very keen to identify who are seen in the area at the relevant time,” the police said in a press release.

The baby girl’s body was found in bushes in Manor Park at around 1.30pm on Friday 19 May 2017.

“We believe the baby girl was born in bushes next to the park. Her body was left in the park after being murdered by an unknown person sometime between 6pm on Monday 15 May and 8am on Tuesday 16 May. Over the past eight months officers in the Major Crime team have conducted a number of detailed enquiries but have still been unable to identify the baby’s mother or anyone connected to her murder.
We have established that the baby died as a result of deliberate head injuries. Expert analysis also suggests that one or both of the parents are of East Asian ancestry. We have obtained a full DNA profile of the baby’s mother and partial DNA, so far we have not identified a match. These profiles can be used to confirm or eliminate a link to the baby,” the police said.

Senior Investigating officer, Detective Chief Inspector Dave Storey said: “It saddens us greatly that despite months of complex and detailed investigation we haven’t identified the new born baby girl and her parents. We need to know why she was killed and bring the person or people responsible to justice. Identifying the baby’s parents is key to us understanding why the baby was killed and the circumstances leading to her tragic death. We have a baby girl, without a name and a proper burial, please help us find out what happened.”

“We have sought expert analysis and opinion from a number of sources to find out as much as we can about the baby and her parents”.

A Forensic Genealogist has suggested that the baby’s parents are of East Asian ancestry and we have made specific enquiries as a result of this information.

“We are in possession of a full DNA profile of the baby’s mother, this allows us to prove or eliminate women believed to be involved.”

Police further says, “With the help of further forensic support we have been able to identify a smaller time window when we believe the offence took place which is overnight between Monday May 15 and Tuesday May 16 2017. This in turn allowed us to look more closely at the CCTV we had seized and find two people we would like to identify as they may hold vital information.”

“Please contact us if you think you can help, what happened to what happened to this new born baby girl is unthinkable, we need to find out who is responsible. If you can help please contact the investigation team on 101 quoting Operation Metre. Alternatively please call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111,” Detective Chief Inspector Dave Storey said.
