Police want to trace a man in connection with the murder of a woman whose body was found in the boot of a burned-out car. Sussex Police want to speak to 26 year old Christopher Jeffrey-Shaw from Lewisham as part of their investigations, and are warning the public not to approach him.
The woman's body was found by firefighters shortly after 2pm on Friday in the back of a badly burned Volkswagen Jetta, which had been dumped in a road by Ifield Golf Club near Crawley, West Sussex. Police were initially unable to determine the gender but a post-mortem examination yesterday found it was a woman, possibly aged in her 20s, who died from smoke inhalation. She has not yet been identified.
A 34-year-old woman from Dulwich, who was arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to murder has been bailed until March 30.
We need to urgently trace Christopher Jeffrey-Shaw in connection with this murder inquiry. A young woman has died in horrific circumstances. If anyone has any knowledge of where this man is or may know the identity of the victim, please come forward. Also we would like to hear from anyone who saw anyone acting suspiciously or the vehicle, a Volkswagen Jetta, in Rusper Road, Ifield on Friday between 2pm and 3pm.
Mr Jeffrey-Shaw is described as being 6ft, of stocky build with dark hair, and has a stubbly goatee beard.
