A Post Mortem Examination has been completed but officers are waiting for further pathology results before confirming how the woman died.

Officers investigating the incident are appealing for anyone with information to come forward. In particular, they would like to speak with anybody who may have seen Nadine Aburas (pictured) accompanied by a Sammy Almahri, 44, who possibly had distinctive injuries to his face, which were unrelated to this incident.

Almahri is a US National, who resides in New York City and had an existing friendship with Nadine. Police have a key timeframe for information, between 8:25pm on Tuesday, December 30, and 3:00am on Wednesday, December 31 (New Year’s Eve) 2014.

The suspect entered the UK on Boxing Day and travelled to Cardiff on 28 December – and South Wales Policeis continuing enquiries to establish his movements during this period.

Sammy Almahri checked into the Future Inn hotel in Cardiff Bay at 8.25pmon 30/12/14. Nadine arrived at the hotel approximately 9pm that evening.Almahri left the premises at 03:00am on 31/12/14. He subsequently took a flight from Heathrow to Bahrain at 10:30am on New Year’s Eve – and may now be in Tanzania.

Hotel guests or visitors to the hotel may have seen them together, as may those who were out in the Cardiff Bay area that evening, between 10pm and 11pm.

As part of this international murder investigation South Wales Police is liaising with Law Enforcement agencies in New York City and Tanzania.

Detective Superintendent Paul Hurley said: “The hotel was busy with people who were in the City to celebrate Christmas and New Year’s Eve.

“People will have seen them together, or on their own, and I would urge them to come forward.

“While we have not yet made any arrests, we have a team of officers who are trying to trace Sammy Almahri, and now believe he is in Tanzania.

“We have been working closely with our counterparts in both NYPD and police officers in Tanzania. From our enquiries we have discovered that Almahri is very resourceful and has access to funds, which may further assist his evasion from law enforcement agencies.

“I consider this man to be a dangerous individual and would advise that any knowledge of his location or sightings of him are reported immediately to the authorities – and he is not to be approached.

“We are supporting Nadine’s family with specially trained officers and they and they have paid the following tribute to her – but at this stage would now like to be left to grieve privately.”

Family tribute: “Nadine was a lovely, bubbly girl and unique and talented woman. She always wanted to help people and everybody loved her. She has left such a massive hole in our family and we will miss her so much. The family respectfully request that they be left to grieve privately.”

Anyone with information is urged to contact South Wales Police via 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

Heartwarming cops share chips with man who hasn’t eaten for days

Published

on

Two police officers this evening shared their chips with a man they found on the motorway who hasn’t eaten food in days.

The caring cops showed compassion and humanity when they could have just nicked the lad and sent him off to the cells.

But instead of taking him straight into police custody they stopped off for some chips.

Showing a truly caring side of British traffic cops who often don’t get the best press.

“The cops from the Leicestershire road policing unit tweeted that they had found on motorway suspected to be an illegal immigrant into the UK.

“He’s not eaten for days and we’ve not eaten for hours, so we’ve all shared some fine English cuisine …… a bag of chips!! 👍🏻 🍟”

These truly caring officers have shown this evening that police officers have hearts and they do care about people.

Policing is not always about crime, it’s the small acts of human kindness that go a long way.

We praise these officers for their genuine out of kindness out of their own pocket.

Helen tweeted “I know you’ll probably get people complain but. Compassion, humanity and care are great qualities.”

UK Cop Humour tweeted “Fab stuff and whilst we’re on the topic of spuds: why do potatoes make good detectives? Because they keep their eyes peeled.”

ElAine tweeted “I know some people’s heads will explode at this but well done for your compassion.”

Simply policing at it’s best. What ever your views you have to admit this is compassion and humility at it’s best.

These cops truly deserve to be recognised for great policing work.

Not every job needs to be a tick box, just because it’s a suspected illegal immigrant doesn’t mean they should be treat any different.

Top job with excellent policing skills, that will have ensured this suspect didn’t cause any problems for the officers.

Full up on chips, the officers then processes this man through custody and will refer to the home office immigration services.
