There are specific forensic examinations which we need to complete to help establish exactly what happened to Becky.
We'd like to reassure the local community that our primary aim is to conduct a meticulous and exhaustive inquiry into Becky's death and even though there have been charges brought in this case, it continues to be an active investigation.''
Police have charged a total of six people in relation to the murder investigation.
Karl Demetrius, 29, Donovan Demetrius, also 29, Jaydene Parsons, 23, all of Barton Court, Bristol and James Ireland, 23, of Richmond Villas, Avonmouth, have all been charged with assisting an offender.
Becky's stepbrother Nathan Matthews is accused of murder and due at Bristol Crown Court on March 26th.

According to the charge sheet, Matthews is charged with the "murder of a person aged one year or older, namely between February 19 and March 3, murdered Rebecca Watts''.
Hoare is charged with perverting the course of justice between February 19 and February 28, namely that she "consistently lied to the police which had a tendency to pervert the course of justice''.
