Police reopen scene at Kersal Wetlands amidst murder inquiry

Police investigating the discovery of human remains in Salford, have reopened a scene nearby.

On April 4, part of a torso, buttocks and thigh of a man in his forties were found wrapped in plastic in Kersal Wetlands.

Since then, hundreds of specialist officers and scientists have been working around the clock to search the area.

On Wednesday, police decided to close the scene but with the investigating parameters moving and the search widening, a scene at Great Clowes Street and Kersal Wetlands was re-opened on Saturday.

Police want to urgently speak with anyone who was in the area between 6am and 6pm on Thursday, April 4. From the vast CCTV trawls which have taken place since the investigation launched, police have reported that children were playing in the area in the days leading up to the victim being found, – and they could hold crucial information without realising it.

Further enquiries

Detective superintendent Lewis Hughes said: “I understand there has been large public interest in the case, so it is only right that we inform you of our most recent update.

“Whilst our extensive search of the area was completed last week, we have some further enquiries that we are looking to exhaust during the course of the day.

“I would like to reassure you that this is precautionary. Every piece of intelligence we receive is investigated thoroughly, leaving no stone unturned to give us the best chance of finding out who our victim is and what happened to him.

“If you have any information that you would like to share with us, or any concerns, please do not hesitate to speak to my officers at the scene.

“At this stage, we are expecting to be at the scene for several hours, but there should be no disruption to the wider community. I would like to thank residents once again for their patience and cooperation in assisting us in our investigation. We will keep people informed as soon as we have more updates to share.”
