Janet Muller (21), from Eastbourne, East Sussex was found dead on 13th March 2015 in Rusper Road, near Ifield Golf Club, Horsham, West Sussex in the boot of a burned-out car. She had died of smoke inhalation.

Christopher Jeffrey-Shaw (26) of Beckenham, London, has been charged with her murder.

Ms Muller was a student at Brighton University. She was reporting missing from Mill View Hospital in Nevill Avenue, Hove the day before she was found dead.

Firefighters found Ms Muller’s body in a badly-burned Volkswagen Jetta, which had been dumped in a road by Ifield Golf Club near Horsham, West Sussex.

Although we have charged a man with murder, I am appealing for information from anyone who may have seen Janet on Thursday night 12th of March.”

Ms Muller was of mixed ethnic heritage, slim and 5ft 7in tall, with shoulder-length, dark brown curly hair and brown eyes. She was wearing dark clothing.

FOD Comment:

For Our Daughters received the following heart-felt email from Barbarina on 19th March 2015 and we thought it important to publish it. Though this dreadful death is now receiving more publicity, we still know very little about Janet Muller.

We hope it may be of comfort to Janet Muller’s bereaved family and friends to know that strangers are thinking of her.

We would be happy to publish tributes to her.

Dear forourdaughters,

I may be speaking out of place, as I realise the police maybe keeping information out of the media for a reason. However, I am distressed to see so little coverage about 21 year old Janet Muller, a Brighton university student, whose body was found in a burnt out car.

How can this not be National news? I get the feeling that it maybe being treated as a ‘domestic’ incident.

There are no references to her family or anyone sending condolences like they would normally do for a human being?

I am not looking for a reply. I didnt know her at all. As a mother, I just feel so very sad about this and I just want to voice this. Your site is the only place.
