Sister of primary school teacher Sabina Nessa pens harrowing tribute

"Why was she taken from us"

Police investigating the murder of primary school teacher Sabina Nessa believe she was killed just five minutes from her home.

The 28-year-old's body was found in Cator Park in Kidbrooke, Greenwich, London.

She had been missing for 24 hours before her body was found.

It is understood that Ms Nessa was on her way to meet friends at a pub when she was killed.

Police believe she was killed at approximately 8.30 pm, while she was walking to the pub to meet her friends.

Detective Inspector Joe Garrity commented: "Sabina never arrived at the pub and is thought to have been murdered as she walked through the park."

"Sabina’s journey should have taken just over five minutes but she never made it to her destination."

He added, "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."
