We have always kept an open mind about how the foot got there. Officers carried out a thorough search of the area it was found and DNA tests confirmed that the foot belongs to a man but no other clues have been identified and sadly we still don’t know the person’s identity.
Police in Gloucestershire are renewing their appeal for information after a human foot was found by a riverbank. The decomposed foot was found by a couple walking along the River Severn in Deerhurst on Saturday March 21 2009.
Since the discovery police have been trying to identify the person the body part came from and how it came to be on the riverbank.
The appointment of new Chief Constable Suzette Davenport was approved at a meeting of the Gloucestershire Police and Crime Panel this afternoon.
Ms Davenport, 50, the current Deputy Chief Constable of Northamptonshire Police was put forward as the preferred candidate of four who attended an interview board headed by Commissioner Martin Surl last Tuesday.
She is due to take up her new role on 4 February.
– Martin Surl, Gloucestershire's Police and Crime Commissioner
We followed the procedure set out by the College of Policing and I am delighted the Police and Crime Panel has agreed with us that Suzette is the best person for the job.
She was the outstanding candidate in a very strong field and having met with her today, the panel has confirmed our judgement. I am looking forward to working with her to provide the best possible police service for Gloucestershire.
The panel addressed issues relating to the investigation by the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) into a murder inquiry in Staffordshire in 2002. From 2005 to 2007, Ms Davenport was Assistant Chief Constable there.
The IPCC investigation is a matter of public record and I have been completely open about it throughout the recruitment process.
I made the interview board fully aware of it and, where possible, I have answered questions from the media.
As I have said before, until the investigation is completed I am restricted in what I can say but I am confident there will be a positive outcome.
– Suzette Davenport
In the meantime, I am grateful to the Police Commissioner for his support and the endorsement of the Police and Crime Panel.
The whole process has restored my faith in fairness and justice and I am very much looking forward to starting my new job.
I am very proud and excited to be coming to Gloucestershire and having met a number of my new colleagues already, I can’t wait to get started.
