What happened to Sara Sharif?
On August 10, Sara Sharif’s body was discovered at a residence near Woking, starting a murder investigation.
Her body was discovered after her father, Urfan, dialed 911 from Pakistan.
She had endured “multiple and extensive injuries” over a “sustained and extended” period of time, according to a post-mortem study.
