Police release CCTV to help with ‘no body double murder case’

NewsPolice release CCTV to help with ‘no body double murder case’

Police are calling on the public for information in a “no body” double murder case. 

Fiona Holm, 48, from Lewisham in South East London, was reported missing on 29 June after friends and family discovered mould on both the food in her fridge and linen in the washing machine.

Tragically, subsequent police inquiries into her disappearance determined the worst.

Detective Chief Inspector Kate Blackburn said: “We launched the missing person’s investigation and sadly concluded that she’s been murdered.

“We haven’t found her body so we’re investigating this as a no-body homicide.”

Described as a vulnerable person, Ms Holm’s out-of-character disappearance occurred after a visit to friends in the Catford area of east London on 20 June, this was also the last time her bank account was accessed.

the detective added,

To help jog memories, the Metropolitan Police has released CCTV of her last known movements that night. 

The footage shows Holm walking past a graveyard on Verdant Lane wearing a green top and dark leggings. It is DCI Blackburn’s belief she was killed either on the evening these images were captured or the day after. 

The detective said: “We don’t know what has happened to Fiona or where her body is.”

Ms Holm was an active community member in Lewisham and Blackheath and police are asking those who might have seen her in the period before her disappearance to remember if they noticed anything. 

The detective added: “Do you know her? Did you see her from mid to late June? If you did, was she anxious or worried about anything – did she share any information with you about what was going on in her life?

“If you live in, or travelled through, the Verdant Lane area of Catford on 20 June, and have not already spoken to the police, do you have either doorbell or dash-cam footage that might include images of Fiona?

“If you saw, spoke to, or have information concerning Fiona please get in touch. No matter how insignificant your information might seem, please share it with us.”

Ms Holm has children and is from a big family who are struggling to process their trauma while she remains missing and presumed dead.

DCI Blackburn said: “Her family is obviously distraught, they need some answers, they can’t grieve until Fiona is found.”

Police believe Holm’s killing is linked to the death of Naomi Hunte, 41, who was found stabbed to death in her flat on Valentine’s Day last year. A 65-year-old man has been charged with both murders.

If you saw Fiona or have information concerning her disappearance, please call 101 or Tweet @MetCC quoting 22MIS023317. To remain 100 percent anonymous call the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 or visit Crimestoppers-uk.org.
