The Jewish Chronicle - - HOME NEWS - BY LEON SY­MONS

AN IS­RAELI-BORN po­lice com­mu­nity-sup­port of­fi­cer was found dead in his home in Gold­ers Green last Fri­day.

Guy Sagi, 36, had been a mem­ber of the Weald­stone Safer Neigh­bour­hoods team of Har­row Bor­ough Po­lice since last Novem­ber. His death was not thought to be sus­pi­cious. A post-mortem took place on Tues­day, and an inquest into Mr Sagi’s death was opened and ad­journed. His body was due to be flown back to Is­rael for burial on Wed­nes­day.

Weald­stone col­league Sergeant Paul Mills said: “Guy was a fan­tas­tic hu­man be­ing and was an ab­so­lute in­spi­ra­tion to ev­ery­one on the team.

“In the short time that I knew him, he be­came a per­sonal friend. Guy will be sorely missed by all the team. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his fam­ily and friends at this ex­tremely dif­fi­cult time.”
