Stuart Everett's murder investigation

Police have opened up another scene in Parr Fold Park in Worsley as Stuart Everett’s murder investigation continues.

This comes after police closed down the Boggart Hole Clough scene yesterday (May 30) after making “significant recoveries”.

Police say they have used CCTV trawls and members of the public to build a fuller timeline of events and it’s led to the new scene being opened.

Stuart Everett, 67, is believed to have died at an address in the Winton area of the city at the end of March. Parts of his body have been subsequently found in four different areas of the city.

Two men from Eccles have since been arrested and remanded in custody on suspicion of murder.

Detective Superintendent Lewis Hughes, of GMP’s Serious Crime Division, said: “We have worked our way through a number of scenes, and this continues to be a big piece of work for us and the scale of this is unprecedented as we push forward with our investigation.

“Today, although we have closed our scene at Boggart Hole Clough, we will be opening another scene at Parr Fold Park in Worsley. This is also a well-used public space in Salford and we understand the disruption this may cause to those who live in the nearby area but we need to do this.

“We are working as efficiently as we can, but we need to search as thoroughly as possible for Stuart’s family so they can have the answers they need to process his death.

“We would like to thank the public for their patience and also their gratitude, as we have had a number of members of the public thanking officers for their work whilst we completed our searches at Boggart Hole Clough. We know that this is a public space that we had to close for a number of days but ultimately our searches are providing us with more evidence that we need to progress our investigation.”
