Detectives renew appeal for information following the death of a Widnes woman
Main article content
Detectives have renewed their appeal for information following the 31st anniversary of the death of a Widnes woman.
Mother-of-two Veronica Anderson, known as Vera, left her home in Widnes at 10.10pm on Saturday 24 August 1991 after receiving a phone call.
Just hours later (shortly after 3am on Sunday 25th August 1991) the 42-year-old was found dead in her car off Tannery Lane in Penketh, Warrington.
A murder investigation was subsequently launched by Cheshire Constabulary and, earlier this year, two people were arrested on suspicion of murder in connection with the case.
They have both since been released under investigation.
Now, on the 31st anniversary of Vera’s death, officers are appealing for anyone who has any information about the case to come forward.
Detective Chief Inspector Adam Waller said:
“A lot has changed in the last 31 years however for Vera’s family, time has stood still.
“No matter how many years pass, Vera’s death remains to have an impact on their lives.
“We will continue to work on any snippet of information that is provided to us and are committed to doing everything possible to find those responsible and bring them to justice.”
