Murder of baby unsolved 1 year after she’s found in Hampshire park

A year after a newborn baby was found dead in a parkland bush, detectives admitted that they were still trying to solve the horrifying murder but were chasing ‘significant leads.’

The baby girl’s body was found mid-afternoon in a bush to the side of a busy park, where police believe the infant was born earlier in the week.

Detectives have established that the baby died as a result of deliberately caused head injuries. 

A year after a newborn baby was found dead in a parkland bush, detectives admitted that they were still trying to solve the horrifying murder but were chasing ‘significant leads.

Expert analysis also suggested that one or both of the parents were of East Asian ancestry.

However, experts have been unable to trace the mother and the hunt continues for two people seen on CCTV in ‘western dress’ on the night of the incident.

Extensive door-to-door work in the area since January has also brought a new lead with one witness claiming he saw three ‘middle-aged Asian men’ also in ‘western dress’ within the bushes of Manor Park in Aldershot, Hampshire where the newborn was found.

Police said that this falls after the baby was born but before her tiny body was found on Friday 19 May, last year.

Detective Chief Inspector Dave Storey of Hampshire Police Major Crime Team, said: ‘Over the past year we have conducted a complex and detailed investigation and this work absolutely continues. 

‘We are determined to identify anyone connected to this murder. We need to know why a new born baby girl was killed and bring the person or people responsible to justice.

‘House-to-house inquiries, which began in January, have led to officers visiting more than 1,000 homes. There are a number of potential leads we are following up as a result of this work.

‘Someone out there in the Aldershot community must know something which would help us understand what happened this time last year. A lot changes in a year, you may not have felt you could speak to us back then but maybe you can now?

‘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.

‘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.’
