Sabina Nessa's sister breaks down at candlelit vigil

Telegraph, 25 Sep 2021
Hundreds of mourners gathered for an emotional candlelit vigil in memory of the "amazing, caring, beautiful" primary school teacher Sabina Nessa, as the police hunt for her killer entered its second week.

Family members wiped away tears as they spoke movingly of the sorrow the 28-year-old's murder had caused, with detectives renewing appeals for information about a man captured on CCTV around the time and place of her death last Friday.

The Duchess of Cambridge shared a personal message on Twitter, describing how she was "saddened by the loss of another innocent young woman on our streets".

Detective Chief Inspector Trevor Lawry told the more than 500 people gathered at the vigil in Pegler Square, Kidbrooke, south-east London: "Please help us catch the person responsible for this shocking incident."

Ms Nessa had been walking to meet a friend at a pub near her home when she was fatally attacked in Cator Park.

Her body was discovered by a member of the public the next day, having been hidden under a pile of leaves, it was reported.
