Plea for help with mystery of West Sussex child’s death

Southsea firefighters save pet Chihuahuas from house blaze

Have your say

A HEARTBROKEN father has made a fresh appeal for witnesses in a bid to find out how his four-year-old daughter died.

Steve Madden has used the first anniversary of the tragedy to urge people to come forward with any information which could help him find out what happened to his daughter.

Keira Madden’s body was found in the master bedroom of the family home in Roundle Avenue, Bognor, by police on July 3 last year.

Her mother Cathy wrote a suicide note and said Keira had drowned while swimming at the beach. Cathy’s body was found at the bottom of cliffs near Eastbourne at about 2.30pm on the same day.

An inquest in May recorded an open verdict.

Mr Madden said: ‘If anyone out there can remember anything, no matter how small, I would ask them to please contact Sussex Police on 0845 60 70 999.’
