Evidence hunt over Anita death
Police search for phone and clothing belonging to killed woman
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.
