Murder squad detectives are aiming to build a ‘complete picture’ of the life and people known to murdered pregnant mum Kelly Mary Fauvrelle.
Detective Chief Inspector Mick Norman who is leading the double murder inquiry said he wants to hear from anyone who was in contact with the eight month pregnant mum who was attacked in her home in Raymead Avenue.
Her bedroom was on the ground floor at the back, and a cot had been set up for her unborn baby Riley who tragically died just days after paramedics delivered him by emergency caesarean section after his mother was declared dead at the scene. The well liked postwoman had been stabbed multiple times.
Her family were asleep in adjoining rooms and were only alerted by her screams.
Officers are keeping an ‘open mind’ about the motive for the horrific crime and DCI Norman said police urgently need to trace the man captured on CCTV who was seen casually walking towards the house, with what looks like something in his hand and then 10 minutes later running away.
DCI Norman said: “Another key aim is to build a complete picture of Kelly’s life and the people with whom she was in contact. I want to hear from anyone who knew Kelly who has not yet spoken to police.”
Her close friends and devastated family have kept a respectable silence.
While Kelly was a private person her Facebook page was public and her pride at being an auntie and soon to be mum was clear for everyone to see.
In a heartbreaking Facebook post in February, she shared an image from an ultrasound scan and wrote: “Happy Valentine’s sweet pea… we can’t wait to meet you.”
Police will be trawling through her phone, social media, speaking to work colleagues, friends, or anyone connected to the family to build up a better picture of her lifestyle to see if they can find clues to the attack.
