Anyone with information, or who may have dashcam footage from the time, is asked to get in touch.

DI Adam Waller of Cheshire Police said: “We’re keen to establish Ann Marie’s movements in the hours leading up to her death and really want to speak to anyone who may have information to assist the investigation. Did you see Ann Marie going to the stables? Or did you see anything you thought was suspicious but you haven’t yet spoken to police?”

I’d like to reassure residents that our priority is to find out what happened to Ann Marie and we are working around the clock to establish the circumstances surrounding the death. If you see us out and about tonight and have any concerns please speak to us.
