The case of the murder of Sabina Nessa, the 28-year-old primary school teacher murdered in south-east London, continues to debate British public opinion. The young woman had disappeared on her way from home to a pub not far from her home, where she was supposed to meet some friends. His body was found by a passerby on September 18 in Cator Park, in the Kidbrooke area (Greenwich), south-east of the metropolis.
Today a 38-year-old man ended up in handcuffs on charges of being responsible for the crime: the police believe this new arrest – which follows that of a 40-year-old and another 38-year-old, both subsequently released for lack of evidence – a “significant development” in investigations.
The arrested man was apprehended in the past few hours in East Sussex.
In the past six months, at least 77 women have been killed in the UK, murders in which the main suspect is a man.
Chief detective Trevor Lawry, in a press conference, defined the case of Nessa as “an isolated episode in the general landscape of the city”, arguing that the streets of London “are safe for all women”. Statements that have raised the controversy of some feminist organizations against the police force, accused of minimizing what happened.
What’s more, it’s only been six months since Sarah Everard was kidnapped and killed by a Scotland Yard policeman, once again in a park in the English capital.
