Further searches made as police continue Stuart Everett murder investigation

Police are searching more locations in North Manchester and Salford as they look for more evidence as part of Stuart Everett’s murder investigation.

They began a major investigation after a torso wrapped in plastic was found in a wooded area at Kersal Dale in Salford on April 4.

Two men have been charged with murder and the victim was identified as 67-year-old Stuart Everett.

Searches

Officers are now searching Boggart Hole Clough in North Manchester along with land near to Walkden Train station over the coming days.

Land near to Patricroft Railway station will be searched by British Transport Police officers.

These searches are as a result of in-depth CCTV and phone data enquiries that detectives have located during the investigation.

Members of the public can expect to see officers from the Tactical Aid Unit, Crime Scene Investigators, underwater search divers and also canine units as police search these areas.

“Exceptional” detective work

Detective superintendent Lewis Hughes said: “The scenes that we will be searching over the coming days have come to our attention through some exceptional detective work conducted by the investigation team.

“We know there will be some disruption to the local community as a result of searching other locations, but it is so important that we do this, we need to be able to provide Stuart’s family with the information they need to process this news.

“Our investigation is ongoing, we still have a lot of work to do and I hope the public can see the dedication and compassion that continues to be shown across the force by officers and staff who are either keeping the scene secure, searching for evidence or investigating this behind the scenes – we all have our part to play in getting justice for Stuart’s family and every search we conduct is one step closer to finding answers for them.”
