Hunt for killer as primary school teacher, 28, found dead in London park

Sabina Nessa’s body was found in Cator Park, Greenwich. This was only a few miles from where the 28-year-old worked in Catford. Officers were called at 5.32pm on Saturday after she had been missing for almost 24 hours.

Now police are appealing for the public’s assistance.

Ms Nessa had been a teacher at nearby Rushey Green Primary School after studying at the University of Bedfordshire.

She started working at the school in July 2020.

A man, aged in his 40s, was arrested on suspicion of murder, but he has been released under investigation pending further enquiries.

Detective Chief Inspector Joe Garrity said: “Our initial enquiries suggest that this attack happened at around 8.30pm on Friday, September 17.

“This was a time when the park was likely being used by many people from dog walkers to joggers.

“Sabina was found near the OneSpace community centre.

“We know is a facility used by lots of people and we would ask anyone who was in or around the area and who may have any information to come forward.
