Detectives investigating the deaths of Kelly Mary Fauvrelle and her baby son in Thornton Heath have released CCTV footage of a man they wish to trace.
The CCTV shows a man seen walking towards Kelly’s address at around 03:15hrs on 29 June.
Just over 10 minutes later, the same male can be seen running back along Raymead Avenue, away from Kelly’s address, toward Colliers Water Lane.
Anyone who knows the identity of the man is urged to call the dedicated incident room immediately on 020 8721 4005. To remain anonymous, call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
Detective Chief Inspector Mick Norman is leading the investigation.
“On Wednesday, 3 July, we heard the sad news that Kelly’s baby son, Riley, had died in hospital. Our thoughts remain with their family.
“I am now treating this as a double homicide investigation, and this tragic development makes it even more important that anyone with information comes forward as a matter of urgency.
“We have released the footage as the next step in what has been a fast-paced and extremely challenging investigation.
“We need to identify the man shown in the images urgently, even if only to eliminate him from our enquiries. I need to hear from anyone who knows who he is. If this is you, it is imperative that you contact my team immediately.”
Police were called by London Ambulance Service (LAS) at 03:30hrs on Saturday, 29 June to reports of a woman in cardiac arrest inside an address on Raymead Avenue in Thornton Heath.
Officers attended along with LAS and found 26-year-old Kelly Mary Fauvrelle suffering from stab injuries. Despite the efforts of paramedics, she sadly died at the scene.
Kelly was eight months’ pregnant. Her baby boy, who her family has named Riley, was delivered by LAS at the scene before being taken to hospital. He died at 03:10hrs on Wednesday, 3 July.
Kelly was murdered in her bedroom at the family home. The family were present, but they did not see the attacker. Kelly’s sister found her, having heard screams.
The bedroom was on the ground floor, and a cot had been set up for her unborn baby.
There was no sign of forced entry, but the house may not have been secure.
A 37-year-old man [A] and a 29-year-old man [B] were arrested on Saturday, 29 June and Sunday, 30 June, on suspicion of murder. ‘A’ has been released with no further action. ‘B’ is bailed to a date in August.
DCI Norman continues to appeal for any witnesses, CCTV footage or anyone with any information at all that could assist, to come forward.
He said: “A dedicated team of detectives are working day and night on this investigation.
“We have assured Kelly’s family – and I want to reassure local residents and the wider public too – that we are doing absolutely everything in our power to find the person responsible.
“I am aware that there is some speculation about whether Kelly’s attacker was known to her. At this stage, we simply are not in a position to say, and we must retain an open mind.
“One of the key aims of my investigation is to build a complete picture of Kelly’s life and the people with whom she was in contact. I want to hear from anyone who knew Kelly who has not yet spoken to police.
“We are in contact with the baby’s father, who has been with Kelly’s family since her death.
“I also need to consider other possible scenarios, and we will be continuing forensic work at the family home for at least a week. We have not recovered a weapon at this time.
“Members of the public may have useful information, and I am today reiterating my appeal for anyone who may know anything that will assist the investigation to make contact as soon as possible.”
