Police rule out foul play in photographer’s death

Police rule out foul play in photographer's death
Sabrina Goacher

The body of Sabrina Goacher, 30, was discovered in August, but a post-mortem at the time failed to find a cause of death.

A 30-year-old man from the area was arrested following the death, but he was released without charge.

Now, following toxicology results, police say the death remains ‘unexplained’, but they have ruled out foul play.

A spokesman for Kent Police said: “The death is being treated as non-suspicious but unexplained, and a report will now be prepared for the coroner.”

Ms Goacher, who worked as a front of house supervisor at West Kent College, was a familiar face to many in the local area, especially in the Tunbridge Wells music scene.

She worked with a number of bands and was a regular at local festivals and music events. She had previously worked at the popular Cassidy’s Sports Bar.

The young woman was also a local events organiser, including for the Small Charities Coalition, and she had campaigned on behalf of the homeless.

Her body was found in a secluded wooded area near Mount Ephraim and Church Road at 8.47pm on Monday, August 19. She had been reported missing the day before when she was last seen walking along St John’s Road at around 6.17am.

An inquest into the death will now take place at the Coroner’s Court at the Archbishop’s Palace in Maidstone later this year.
