Police in Essex today insisted they are doing “everything they can” to catch those responsible for the death of Nahid Almanea in Colchester.

Three months have passed since the Saudi national, who was studying at the University of Essex, was discovered with multiple stab wounds on the Salary Brook Trail.

The 31-year-old was attacked while walking from her student accommodation in nearby Woodrow Way, on June 17, along the trail to the university complex in Wivenhoe.

Detectives have said they have worked around the clock, following leads, looking through CCTV images and speaking to Nahid’s family and fellow students.

Senior investigating officer, Detective Chief Inspector Mark Hall, of the Kent and Essex Serious Crime Directorate, said: “Over the past few weeks we have made a significant amount of progress.

“We have built up a clearer picture of Nahid’s lifestyle and we have been carrying out a detailed trawl of all the CCTV images that are available. “This is a detailed and time consuming process and has required the use of specialist interpreters.

“We are still appealing for a number of people who may have been using the Salary Brook Trail on the morning that Nahid was murdered to come forward.”
