Liverpool: Mother Still Questioned Over Daughter’s Death

30 Apr

By J. P. Anderson:

Detectives are continuing to quiz a young mother over the killing of her four-year-old daughter.

Chloe Fletcher was found dead at her home in Wallasey, Merseyside, and her 22-year-old mother – who has not been named – was arrested at the red-bricked semi-detached house on Oakdale Avenue on suspicion of murder.

Police have until 2pm on Thursday to hold the suspect before they will need permission from a magistrate to continue questioning her.

A post-mortem examination into Chloe’s cause of death began on Wednesday but Merseyside Police have not yet released the findings.

Neighbours spoke of their shock and upset after police cordoned off the murder scene and began house to house enquiries.

Residents paid tribute to Chloe but said she and her mother kept themselves to themselves and nobody really knew them.

They added that though Chloe was four, her mother still pushed her round in a pram.

Wirral social services also confirmed Chloe and her family were known to them but did not comment further.

Well-wishers have posted dozens of messages on the website Gone Too Soon mourning Chloe’s death.
