Eight months following the murder of a new born baby girl in Aldershot, police are still trying to find who killed her and identify the baby's mother.

The baby girl’s body was found in bushes in Manor Park at around 1.30pm on Friday 19 May 2017.

Police believe she was murdered by an unknown person sometime between 6pm on Monday 15 May and 8am on Tuesday 16 May.

The baby died as a result of deliberate head injuries.

Since May, police have conducted a number of detailed enquiries but have still been unable to identify the baby’s mother or anyone connected to her murder.

Expert analysis also suggests that one or both of the parents are of East Asian ancestry but no DNA match has been found.

Police want to speak to the two people in this CCTV as they believe they have vital information relevant to the investigation.

“It saddens us greatly that despite months of complex and detailed investigation we haven’t identified the new born baby girl and her parents. We need to know why she was killed and bring the person or people responsible to justice.

“Identifying the baby’s parents is key to us understanding why the baby was killed and the circumstances leading to her tragic death. We have a baby girl, without a name and a proper burial, please help us find out what happened.

“We have sought expert analysis and opinion from a number of sources to find out as much as we can about the baby and her parents.

– Senior Investigating officer, Detective Chief Inspector Dave Storey
