The anniversary of the murder of a Sheffield prostitute who was stabbed 19 times sparks re-appeal for information

2 November 2017

Detectives are reviewing the evidence of the unsolved murder of Michaela Hague, aged 25, from Pitsmoor.

The mum-of-one was picked up on Bower Street on Bonfire Night, 2001, before being driven to an isolated car park on nearby Spitalfields, where she was viciously stabbed 19 times.

Ms Hague managed to provide police with a description of her attacker before she was rushed to hospital, where she died.

Eyewitnesses provided details of the killer’s car, an old-style blue Ford Sierra, but despite thorough investigation, it was never traced.

Sunday marks the 16th anniversary of the fatal knife attack and with the rise of recent knife attacks in Sheffield police are looking to crack down on violent crime.

Detective Superintendent Caroline Marsh, said: “The death of Michaela Hague is currently undergoing a review by our major incident review team.”

“Our reviews are extensive and therefore can be quite a lengthy process, however, any relevant and significant lines of enquiry in this investigation will be pursued.”

“I’d always encourage anyone with information about the murder of Michaela Hague, no matter how insignificant you think it might be, to please contact us.”
