Senior Investigating Officer, Detective Chief Inspector Matt Gillooly said: “We would like to thank the community for their cooperation and patience while we have been working the area. We know this is a devastating incident for the victim’s family and will have been shocking for those living in the area.

“We are continuing our work to establish the circumstances surrounding this incident and would still like to speak to anyone who may be able to assist. Were you in the area at the time of the incident, did you see what happened or see anything you think could be linked? Did you see a red Vauhall Corsa in the Gosport or Fareham area before or after the incident?

“We’d also ask anyone who may have dashcam or doorbell footage that could help us to contact us as soon as possible. If you saw the red Vauxhall Corsa in the Fareham and Gosport area we also want to hear from you”.
