The police have issued a new appeal to the public, saying “you know his name, now we need the name of his killer”

Police have launched a new appeal for information to find the killer of nine-year-old Olivia Pratt-Korbel in Liverpool, saying “you know her name, now we need the name of her killer”.

Officers said she will not celebrate her 18th birthday, marry or have children as her life has been cut off.

In a social media post, Merseyside Police posted a video showing images of the student who was shot dead at her home in the Dovecot area on Monday evening, along with photos of two other recent victims of gunshots in town, Sam Rimmer and Ashley Dale.

It comes when “searched” police dogs were seen today in a cordoned off area around Olivia’s home.

At one point, officers raised a dog to the top of a hedge as part of the search.

Emma Birchley of Sky, on the scene, said: “We saw detectives knocking on doors. There is a real momentum to try to carry out this investigation.”

Officers have appealed to the public to name those who killed them, saying “silence is not an option” and people who might be hiding the information have been warned that they are protecting the killers.

A voiceover in the video says: “We have parents who have lost children. We have a nine-year-old girl who won’t celebrate her 18th birthday, won’t celebrate her wedding, won not having her own children.”

He added: “If you have information and are hiding it, you are protecting the killers. We need your information. Give us this information and we will do the rest.”

A caption with the post read: “The progress we have made in seeking justice Olivia Pratt-KorbelAshley Dale and Sam Rimmer is thanks to the information of the public.

“Unfortunately, we now all know the names of Olivia, Ashley and Sam. Now we need their killers.”

Merseyside police said anyone with information can contact them via social media or by calling 101.

CCTV, dashcam and smart doorbell footage can be sent online via mipp.polizia.uk.

Ms. Dale, 28, a municipal worker, was found fatally wounded in the back garden of a house in Old Swan on Sunday 21 August. It is believed that she was not the intended victim.

Mr. Rimmer, 22, was shot in Dingle on Tuesday, August 16.

“Huge community support”

Today a religious service is held in Liverpool to remember Olivia.

Underground Mayor for the Liverpool City Region Steve Rotheram told Sky News: “The community support here is enormous. You will see solidarity like no other. People help each other in times of crisis. And you will see solidarity like no other. People help each other in times of crisis. And this is one such event. And so it’s great that the church is helping those people hopefully suffer and come to terms with what has happened in the last week. “

He added: “There is already a growing anger about something of this magnitude happening. And so you can understand the devastation of people who can’t really understand what’s going on so close to where they live.”

Murder suspects released on bail

Police investigating Olivia’s murder yesterday released on bail two men who had been arrested and interrogated on murder charges and two counts of attempted murder.

They were a 36-year-old man from Huyton and a 33-year-old man from Dovecot. The 36-year-old was recalled to jail for violating his license terms.

After their release, Sky’s Emma Birchley said: “Having talked to the people around here, there was a sense of anger and disappointment last night.

“One mom said she was devastated, she really hoped the police had found the right person, but they clearly feel they don’t have enough evidence to be able to accuse someone at this stage.”

Officers were also seen carrying a door away from the scene of the attack as Merseyside police continue to search for information on a car.

“We are still appealing to anyone who saw a black Audi Q3 in the days leading up to the shooting, or has information about its movements after leaving Kingsheath Avenue on the night of the shooting,” the force said.

Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson wore a jersey on Saturday at Anfield with the message: “RIP Olivia, YNWA” (you will never walk alone).

Student was shot dead after gunman chased after designated target, who was named 35-year-old convicted thief Joseph Neein his family home.

His mother Cheryl, 46, was injured in the shooting.
