Olivia cops hunting schoolgirl's killer search lake & golf course close to her home for murder weapon | The Sun
COPS hunting the killer of schoolgirl Olivia Pratt-Korbel were today searching a lake at a golf course close to the scene of her killing for the murder weapon.
Underwater search teams were focussing on a brook which runs through West Derby golf course less than a mile away from Olivia’s home.
Cops were also using drones to examine the course.
Detective Chief Superintendent Mark Kameen, who is leading the search, said: “Three weeks on and our investigation continues in our relentless pursuit of the man responsible for Olivia’s murder and those who are shielding him.
“I promised that we would leave no stone unturned in our hunt for the offender and the guns used on that night, and today following information we are carrying out an extensive land search at West Derby Golf Club in our hunt for those weapons.
“Our search teams are being supported by the North West Underwater Search Team and the Merseyside Police drone unit and the search will take place in the area including the brook which runs through the area.

“My message to the offender is clear – we will not stop until we have the evidence to put you before the courts and behind bars.”
DCS Kameen also revealed today that the nine-year-old, who was gunned down in her own home in Knotty Ash, Liverpool, on August 22, dreamed of being a teacher or a vet.
He said: “Olivia’s family are absolutely broken by her tragic loss, which has robbed a beautiful young child of the life and future she should have been looking forward to.
“Olivia wanted to be a teacher, or a vet and her family have described her as someone who liked to laugh and make others laugh.
“She was an innocent young child in her own home, who should have been safe.”
Olivia was fatally shot and her mother Cheryl Korbel was injured when a gunman chased convicted burglar Joseph Nee into their home at about 10pm.
