The lead investigator into a case concerning the death of a toddler in Coventry said he is determined to find out what happened to the three-year-old.
Detective Inspector Chris Hanson is urging anyone with information about Mariam Alam's death to contact him.
The supermarket camera footage – which is available on the force’s YouTube channel – shows Mariam wearing a red flowery dress, white tights and a pink coat walking in front of her mother as they enter Lidl in John Wigley Way at 1pm.
They can be seen leaving five minutes later – but at around 1.20pm paramedics were called to the address in Fisher Road after the child collapsed. Despite the best efforts of medics, the toddler couldn’t be saved.
Detectives investigating the death of a Coventry toddler two years ago are still appealing for information from the community that could prove crucial to the case.
Mariam Alam died in hospital from head injuries on 30 November 2011 after paramedics were called to a house in Foleshill’s Fisher Road.
Mystery surrounded the toddler’s death but in July this year a family friend and neighbour was charged with her murder.
He remains in prison ahead of a scheduled court trial in February next year, whilst two other people from Fisher Road – women aged 33 and 26 – have also been charged with attempting to pervert the course of justice.
