Murder probe: police seek three cyclists


POLICE investigating the death of a 49-year-old woman in Burtonwood, Warrington are appealing for three cyclists to contact police as they may be potential witnesses.
At 10.07pm on Friday November 2 police were called to stables at Old Alder Lane in Burtonwood following reports of concern for welfare of a 49-year-old woman from Winwick.
On arrival they found the body of a woman who, although not yet formally identified, is believed to be Anne Marie Pomphret – known to her family as Marie.
Her death is being treated as suspicious and a 50-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of murder. Marie’s family is being provided specialist support by officers.
DI Adam Waller said: “We are working tirelessly to establish the circumstances surrounding the death and conducting a number of enquiries in the area including house-to-house, CCTV and forensic enquiries. This means the local community will probably see lots of officers in the area, but please do not be alarmed. They are there to provide reassurance, so if anyone has issues or concerns please speak to an officer.
“As part of our enquiries we’ve established that there were three cyclists with lights on their bikes who cycled together from the direction of Burtonwood along Hall Lane towards the ‘Fiddle I’th Bag’ public house between 9pm and 10pm.
“These cyclists could be vital to our investigation, so if you think you were one of them, or if anyone else has information that could help with our enquiries, please do get in touch with us.”
