DOVECOT, LIVERPOOL: The nine-year-old girl, Olivia Pratt-Korbel, who was shot dead at her home on August 22, has received a well-wishing note from the Nee family. It is still unknown if it belongs to the relatives of Joseph Nee, the 35-year-old convicted burglar who was the intended target of a masked attacker.

As previously reported, an unidentified gunman shot Olivia in a gang war after barging into her house while chasing Joseph. When the gunman opened fire, Olivia was standing behind her mother Cheryl. Cheryl was shot in the wrist, and the bullet passed through her and into Olivia's chest, leading to the girl's death. On August 23, Joseph was arrested in hospital for violating his license conditions, and Merseyside police said he would be returned to prison. On August 29, the RIP note was found near Olivia's house that read, "So sorry for the loss of beautiful Olivia. Rest in peace. Thinking of your family, Nee family," reported by DailyMail.
