Police can confirm that the woman’s body found in bush land in East End on Tuesday, March 17, is that of missing 21-year-old Sabrina Schirn. Formal identification took place over the weekend.
A post mortem (PM) was also carried out by a forensic pathologist from Miami. The PM has shown that Sabrina suffered multiple sharp force and chop injuries. Police cannot confirm the time of death at this time and enquiries into this continue.
‘This was clearly an act of extreme violence which resulted in the tragic death of young Sabrina,’ said Detective Inspector Kim Evans. ‘Our condolences go out to her family and friends.’
A major incident room continues to operate from Bodden Town police station staffed with experienced detectives who are being supported by numerous officers from departments including Scenes of Crime, Family Support Unit and officers from the Financial Crime Unit.
‘Our team is working exceptionally hard to find out what happened to Sabrina and bring her killer or killers to justice. We are comfortable with how the investigation is going so far and a number of positive lines of enquiry are being followed up,’ said Mr Evans. He noted, however, that it would be reckless to publicly go into detail about any of the leads that are being looked at, stressing that all avenues are being examined.
Detectives continue to appeal for sightings of Sabrina and the Honda Torneo that she was last known to be using. Mr Evans also appealed for information from anyone who may have been in the High Rock Road area between the morning of Wednesday, March 11 and Tuesday, March 17.
