Surrey Police, forensic teams and the army have all joined forces to start the procedure of digging up parts of a village in an attempt to find the body of a woman who was at the centre of a murder investigation back in 2002.
The excavations are taking place in Priest Lane, Bisley, just west of Woking. as part of Operation Sally. Tina Baker, 41, was initially reported as a Misper (missing person) after the last sighting of her was in Sunbury, some 14 miles east of Bisley, in July 2002.
However, later that year, it was turned into a murder investigation. A Surrey Police statement said that in 2005 her husband, Martin Gerald Baker, was arrested and charged with her murder and was sentenced to 14 years in prison after appearing at the Old Bailey.
Although at the time her body was never found, Police now have information that has led them to start forensic investigations in Bisley.
A detective Inspector from the major crime team of Surrey and Sussex, DI Chris Rambour, has said that work on Mrs Baker’s death has been continual since 2006 and that now further information has come to light they will be centering their investigation on that part of Bisley.
He went on to say that he wanted residents to be aware of the reason for the increased Police presence in the area and finished off by saying that it was extremely important to them to find answers and closure for Mrs Baker’s family and friends, and that thoughts are with them at this very sad time.
