Inquest into toddler's death

An inquest will be opened tomorrow into the death of a toddler who was found dead at her home in Bicester.

Sarah Dahane was found by police in Herald Way, Glory Farm, last Thursday.

Police said yesterday that the death was being treated as murder and that her mother Angela Whitworth, who is believed to have fled to Kenya, is a suspect.

The inquest will be opened by the Oxfordshire Coroner at Oxford's County Hall.

This investigation is on-going and we will continue to gather evidence to determine how and why Sarah died. We are working with the Crown Prosecution Service to consider appropriate options including the potential for possible extradition proceedings in the future.
