Thank you for contacting me about the death of Blessing Olusegun.
Blessing’s death was incredibly tragic and my sympathies remain with her friends and family.
I understand that Blessing’s loved ones rightfully want answers about the circumstances of her death, and I would like to reassure you that detectives are continuing to investigate her case.
Sussex Police launched an investigation which included the identification, collection and review of CCTV footage, a forensic examination and a number of statements. A post mortem took place on 24th September and I am aware that the coroner confirmed the cause of death was drowning. The examination also found no signs of internal or external injuries.
Detectives are working to collect further evidence on behalf of the coroner, who will then hold an inquest to rule on the cause of Blessing’s death. Sussex Police remain in regular contact with Blessing’s family and will update them with any developments.
Thank you again for taking the time to contact me.
