Sarah Everard body identified after discovery in Kent woodland

One body found in Kent Woodland is that of Sarah Everard, Scotland Yard said.

The Met police announced on Wednesday that a diplomatic protection officer arrested for the disappearance of Sarah Everard has been arrested on suspicion of murder.

The force said the man, who is in his forties and part of the parliamentary and diplomatic protection command, was questioned on suspicion of kidnapping and murder.

The force previously said that the officer’s main job was to patrol uniformed diplomatic premises without specifying where he worked.

It was said that he was arrested first on suspicion of kidnapping and later murder, as well as a separate charge of indecent exposure.

The arrested officer was not on duty at the time Ms. Everard went missing.

A woman in her thirties was also arrested on suspicion of assisting a perpetrator.

Marketing director Ms. Everard disappeared on Wednesday March 3rd while walking home from a friend’s apartment in south London.

During a police search of an address believed to be the suspect’s home on Freemens Way in Deal, a tent was erected outside and several cars were taken away by investigators.

A metal fence was later built around the front yard and driveway.

It comes, as Downing Street said, Boris Johnson “fully understand the strength of feeling” regarding Sarah Everard’s disappearance, but urged people to adhere to coronavirus restrictions when asked about a scheduled vigil.

The Prime Minister’s official spokesman said: “He understands the power of emotion on this case and no one can be moved by the experiences of many women since Sarah’s disappearance.

“We are still in a pandemic. We would ask people to follow the rules and rules of social distancing, but we understand the power of emotion on this matter.”

The spokesman, again pushed to protest, said, “He fully understands the power of emotion in this regard and we would ask people to continue to obey the rules and rules of social distancing.”
