Dorset Police in Samantha Henderson case continue forensic investigations in Hamworthy & Corfe Castle

Officers investigating Samantha Henderson's disapperance will continue their forensic examinations of her home in Corfe Castle

Dorset Police investigating the disappearance of Samantha Henderson from Corfe Castle have said they have finished their searches in the nearby Norden area off the A351.

On Saturday police said they were 'confident' that a body found in the lake at Ham Common in Hamworthy, Poole, on Friday 30th January was that of the mother-of-four. Her family are due to make a formal identification this weekend.

Samantha Henderson was reported missing from her home in Corfe Castle on Thursday 22 January. Detailed forensic examinations of her home will continue for a few more days. Investigators say they expect to finish their work in Hamworthy this weekend.

Officers have reissued an urgent appeal asking the public to report if they saw her car being driven in the areas around Corfe Castle or Ham Common between 3pm on Wednesday 21 January 2015 and 5pm on Friday 23 January 2015.

“I would like to assure people that they can approach us in confidence with anything they know or have seen. You can also provide information anonymously via the independent charity Crimestoppers.

“Samantha’s death has understandably shocked local people, who have rallied around her family, friends and neighbours in both Corfe Castle and her original hometown of Poole. Her close family are being supported and regularly updated by specially trained Family Liaison Officers. They have asked for privacy at this sad time.

“I would like to thank the public for their ongoing support to officers carrying out this investigation and their patience while we conduct searches. Their continued caution on social media is also appreciated and important, as inappropriate comments could cause further hurt to her family or potentially prejudice future criminal proceedings.”

– Senior investigating officer Neil Devoto, Dorset Police’s Major Crime Investigation Team

A post mortem examination has been carried out on a body found in a lake in Dorset by police investigating the disappearance of mother-of-four, Samantha Henderson, from her home in Corfe Castle last week.

“This afternoon a post mortem was carried out on the body recovered in Hamworthy. It confirmed that the victim had suffered a violent assault that appears to have been focused on her head and neck.

“Detectives are confident the body is that of Samantha Henderson, the 25-year-old mother-of-four from Corfe Castle missing since last week. The Coroner is aware of the death and formal identification by her next of kin is expected to take place this weekend.

“Although we have recovered a body and a man is charged with murder, it is still vital that people come forward with any information that could help us build a picture of exactly what happened.”
