Bodies of sisters stabbed to death after birthday weren’t found for two days

News

Two sisters died after being stabbed multiple times while they were in a London park celebrating one of their birthdays.

Bibaa Henry was celebrating her 46th with sister Nicole Smallman, 27, and a group of friends in Fryent Country Park, Wembley, last Friday.

Gradually their friends left the party until the sisters, both from Harrow, were left alone at around midnight. Failing to return home, they were reported missing the following day and their bodies were discovered on Sunday.

A post-mortem concluded that they had died as a result of multiple stab wounds and now police are hunting for anyone who might know what happened to them.

Floral tributes have been laid at the scene while neighbours have spoken out over their shock, describing Bibaa as a ‘strong, clued-up person’.

Detective Chief Inspector Simon Harding said: ‘Both these women were stabbed multiple times and we are working tirelessly to find who is responsible.

‘Their families have been devastated by their loss and they need and deserve answers. I need to hear from anyone who was in Fryent Country Park on the evening of Friday, June 5, or early into Saturday, June 6. The area the group were situated in is around a five minute walk from the Valley Drive entrance of the park, leading to a hill area.

‘The area the group were in would be a well-known spot to sit and look over London. If you were in that area of the park from the evening of June 5 through to Sunday lunchtime, noticed the group, or saw anything or anyone suspicious, please contact us immediately.’

He continued: ‘I also want to hear from people who regularly use the park, you may have seen a person acting suspiciously in the days leading up to the attack, you may not think your information is relevant, but it may be vital, so call and tell us what you know.

‘You may also have stumbled upon items of property, but not realised the significance of them. If you did, you may well have information that could assist us hugely. No matter how insignificant it may seem, please contact us via the incident room on 020 8721 4205, or via 101.’
