Tia Sharpe: No sole officer responsible for body blunder
LONDON, ENGLAND: Police in the case of dead schoolgirl Tia Sharpe have launched numerous new inquests to find out why exactly it took so long to find the 12 year old school girl, even though authorities searched her grandmum’s home some four times and never discovered her body inside the loft.
We’re trying not to have a knee-jerk reaction, we need some time to understand what happened and what failed to happen.
“We want to learn lessons from this particular case. We have apologised and I repeat that apology today to Tia’s mum and family for not having found Tia’s body sooner.”
He added: “We’ve explained that it was human error but we want to go into it more.
“You can always blame the individual but we want to understand what processes and management decisions we’ve made that led to that failure.
