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.

Urgent Appeal: Attempted murder of a Police Officer

Published

on

Thames Valley Police is appealing for information after the attempted murder of a police officer in Aylesbury.

The force was called to Market Square at 3.18pm yesterday (13/2) after reports that a vehicle had collided with a police officer.

The vehicle failed to stop following the collision with the officer, who was on-duty at the time of the incident.

The officer has been taken to hospital with head injuries. He was discharged from hospital last night.

Investigating officer, Detective Inspector James Mather of Force CID, said: “I am appealing to anyone who may have information about the incident to please contact police immediately.

“I would particularly like to speak to anyone who has mobile phone or dashcam footage of the incident or the vehicle being driven in the town to come forward.

“The vehicle, a red Vauxhall Astra, was involved in a number of road traffic collisions after the incident in Market Square, but thankfully no-one was injured during these subsequent collisions. I would also like to hear from anyone who saw a vehicle matching the description being driven erratically in the town.

“The vehicle was later located in Osier Way but there was no driver or passengers in the car. We believe the driver and two passengers, all believed to be male, fled the scene.

“Thankfully the officer is now recovering at home with support from his family and the force. This incident highlights the sacrifices that police officers and staff make every day to protect the public across the country.

“Anyone who has any information about the incident is urged to call police on 101 and quote reference number 747 (13/2).”
