Harefield Gazette - - NEWS - By Amy De-Keyzer amy.de-keyzer@trin­i­tymir­ror.com

PO­LICE in­ves­ti­gat­ing the death of Anita Kapoor from Hayes have is­sued an ap­peal for help in trac­ing cloth­ing and a mo­bile phone be­long­ing to the 34-year-old.

Ms Kapoor’s body was found in a lay-by on the A413 near Ger­rards Cross, Buck­ing­hamshire, on June 23.

As part of the in­ves­ti­ga­tion into her al­leged mur­der, Thames Val­ley Po­lice want to trace cloth­ing and a phone which be­longed to Anita and have yet to be re­cov­ered.

Ms Kapoor was last seen alive in Oswald Road, Southall, at around 4am on Tues­day June 23. It is be­lieved she was wear­ing a black coat, grey trousers and white Nike Air Force train­ers, as pic­tured in the CCTV stills po­lice re­leased last week.

Also still miss­ing is her mo­bile phone, a black Sam­sung GTE1080i.

Thames Val­ley Po­lice hopes the public can help trace a mo­bile phone and cloth­ing be­long­ing to Ms Kapoor.

De­tec­tive Chief In­spec­tor Kev Brown, lead­ing the in­ves­ti­ga­tion, said: “We need the public’s help to lo­cate those be­long­ings, par­tic­u­larly her phone, coat, trousers and train­ers. We are still keen to lo­cate these items as they are ev­i­dence and form part of our in­ves­ti­ga­tion into the events sur­round­ing Anita’s dis­ap­pear­ance from Southall and sub­se­quent dis­cov­ery in Ger­rards Cross.

“There­fore her be­long­ings were likely to have been lo­cated in west Lon­don or south Buck­ing­hamshire be­tween these two ar­eas.

“Any­one who has any in­for­ma­tion about these items or their where­abouts is asked to con­tact us as a mat­ter of ur­gency.”

A Home Of­fice post mortem ex­am­i­na­tion car­ried out gave the cause of death as as­phyx­i­a­tion, due to com­pres­sion of the neck.

Navin Mo­han, 34, of Quaker Lane, Southall, has been charged with her mur­der.

The date for his trial has been fixed for Novem­ber 24 at Read­ing Crown Court.

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion can call Thames Val­ley Po­lice on 101, or Crimestop­pers anony­mously on 0800 555 111.
