Body found near Wrexham formally identified as Georgia Williams

Police have formally identified the body found in woodland near Wrexham on Friday as that of missing 17-year-old Georgia Williams.

Although we are not in a position to release any further details for legal reasons, and out of respect for the Williams family at this terribly sad time, I am also able to confirm that Georgia died as a result of pressure being applied to her neck.

An inquest into Georgia’s death will be opened at Wellington Civic Centre at 2pm this afternoon but this will be immediately adjourned till a later date.

– Detective Superintendent Adrian McGee, West Mercia Police
