Colchester: Officers committed to bringing people or person’s responsible for the murders of Nahid Almanea and James Attfield to justice

14:02 15 July 2014

Essex Police search the area near Scarfe Way in Colchester in relation to the murder of Nahid Almanea.

Essex Police search the area near Scarfe Way in Colchester in relation to the murder of Nahid Almanea.

Four weeks on from the murder of Nahid Almanea in Colchester and detectives remain committed to bringing those responsible to justice.

This morning, officers returned to the Salary Brook Trail to talk to people who may have been in the area at the time of Nahid’s death.

Police are continuing to try and build up a clearer picture of who may have been using the trail on the morning on Tuesday, June 17.

There are around 100 detectives from across the region working to solve both the murder of Nahid and the murder of James Attfield which took place in Lower Castle Park in Colchester in March.

Officers have come from Kent, the Metropolitan Police, Suffolk and Norfolk to assist Essex teams. A team of officers in Saudi Arabia is also offering support to Nahid’s family.

Detective Chief Superintendent Steve Worron said: “This is so they know we are doing everything we can to bring justice for their daughter.

“We are continuing to appeal for information from the public to find witnesses who may be able to help us.

“In particular would like to speak to a man who was seen on the Salary Brook Trail between 10.20am and 10.40am, shortly before Nahid was found. He is thought to have been wearing a very distinctive jacket. It is described as being an Italian designer item, it was slightly longer than waist-length, had brown buttons up the front and two pockets also with buttons.

“It was beige in colour, and had a belt which may or may not have had a buckle. A picture of a similar coat is pictured on the Essex Police website.”

He added: “He was walking on the footpath near the underpass on the A133 side of the Salary Brook Trail. He has still not yet come forward and we urgently need to speak with him.

“There are a number of other appeals for people we would like to speak to who can maybe help us build up a clearer picture of events on the Salary Brook Trail on the morning on Tuesday, June 17. Their descriptions are all on the Essex Police website and on our social media sites.

“Please have a look, share with your friends and colleagues. Any information you have no matter how small could help us so please get in touch via the incident room on 01245 282103 or anonymously via independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

“Crimestoppers have offered a reward on £10,000 payable for information which leads to the conviction of the person or people responsible for Nahid’s murder.

“Essex Police has considered and will continue with the high visibility patrols in Colchester. This is to help reassure the public who may be feeling vulnerable following this incident and the murder of James Attfield in March. The officers are talking to people as they carry out their patrols and are obtaining vital information which is helping us with our investigation.”

It would take a phenomenal effort to produce a bad Dirty Dancing show. The 1987 coming-of-age drama is ripe for any interpretation: iconic music, a timeless script, a clear story with emotional depth, relatable characters and well-defined goals, and of course, some pretty captivating dancing.
