Body Found In Kensington Bathtub Was Murdered Eight Months Earlier, Police Say

Body Found In Kensington Bathtub Was Murdered Eight Months Earlier, Police Say”

"It's disturbing and concerning to investigators that it appears someone has deliberately attempted to make it look as though Sarah was still alive, " Detective Inspector Tim Day said on Tuesday.

Sarah Gatt, 40, was found in a bathtub and forensic testing revealed she died sometime between 20 - 24 April past year.

They say Ms Gatt, who was a known drug user, died as many as eight months before she was found and that people who knew she was dead pretended she was alive and well.

'I lost my daughter in that way and I still think I should have went to see her, but when she doesn't want to see you, she won't, ' Mr Gatt said.

Mr Gatt added that she was a "great person" with no faults until she became mixed in the wrong crowd and began living in isolation from her parents.

Homicide detectives believe a violent assault took place at the home prior to her death and conscious steps were taken to hide her body and imply she was still alive several months after her death.

"We are particularly keen to speak to anyone who saw any person coming or going from her Lambeth St unit after April 20 previous year".

Police believe Ms Gatt's grisly death was covered up, and that offenders made conscious efforts to "imply" she was still alive.

Anyone who knew of Ms Gatt's movements last April is also urged to contact Crime Stoppers.

Police said Ms Gatt's four children weren't living with her at her home.

'We didn't know about it and I took her to places to try and get her cleaned up but it wouldn't happen.

"No-one deserves to die like that, no-one", she said.

Sarah, pictured here as a teenager, had aspired to be a model when she was younger. "I used to take her there twice a week", he said.

"She was pretty close to getting some modelling with Kmart, but something happened and it didn't happen".

"I tried (to bring her back) and she didn't want to do it. She was good at school too".

Sarah Gatt had not been in contact with family for 18 months before her body was found in a bathtub in Kensington.

Inspector Day also urged anyone who had spoken to people who had acted as if Sarah was still alive after that date, to come forward.

"She had a lot of big dreams like that which to be honest, I knew would never really happen, but she had good intentions", she said.

"No one deserves to die like that".

Sarah was not reported missing to police at any time.

Police arrested three men and two women shortly after January 3.
