UK murder suspect hiding in Kenya
UK police have offered a Sh1.5 million reward for any information on Angela Whitworth, a woman believed to be hiding in Kenya after allegedly murdering her child.
Thames Valley Police said on their website on Friday that the re-appeal for information concerned the death of 20-month-old Sarah Dahane.
They said the body of the “happy and thriving young child” was found on May 16, 2013 at a property in in Herald Way, Bicester, Oxfordshire
“This investigation has been lengthy and complex, and I will make every attempt to solve this very serious crime and that is why I asking for the public’s help,” said senior investigating officer Ian Hunter.
Hunter said a warrant was issued for Whitworth, whom he said travelled to Kenya a day before Dahane’s body was found.
“I believe she is still in Kenya and I am appealing for anybody who can help us to locate her to come forward. I believe there are people who know where she is and are in contact with her,” he said.
“She has not and will not be forgotten,” he added, regarding the murdered child.
Nabil Dahane, the child’s father, said: “It has been almost three years and I’m still looking for answers. She was happy, thriving and used to love everyone”.
“The time I spent with her, although it was quite short, was one of the best times of my life. This has changed my life; she was my life.”
Hunter said anybody with information should contact the 24-hour Thames Valley Police enquiry centre on 101 or +44 1865 841148 from abroad.
He said those who do not want to speak to police should contact the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
“No personal details are taken, information is not traced or recorded and you will not go to court,” he said.
