Police have been searching a fresh location as part of their investigation after a man’s torso was found earlier this year.

The torso of 67-year-old Stuart Everett was found in Kersal Dale Wetlands, near Prestwich, on April 4, with his remains also found at other locations later that month.

Two men have since been charged with Mr Everett’s murder and detectives have this week opened a new scene at Buile Hill Park in Salford after trawling through CCTV footage.

Detective Superintendent Lewis Hughes of GMP’s Serious Crime Division, said: “We are three months into our investigation into the death of Stuart Everett and our thoughts continue to remain with his family, we are keeping them updated in every stage of our investigation.

“So far, we have conducted searches of 16 locations across Salford and Manchester to find more evidence that supports our enquiries in finding out how Stuart came to his death.

“We have said since the start that we will be thorough in our approach to searching any locations of significance to the investigation and this will continue.

“I would like to thank the communities across Greater Manchester, especially members of the public in Salford, who have shown us unwavering support throughout the investigation.

“Our focus will always be on finding out what happened to Stuart and how he met his death and we will continue to work diligently to search for more evidence, investigate any lines of enquiry and support Stuart’s family through this difficult time.”

Previous sites to have been searched during the investigation include Blackleach Reservoir, Linneyshaw Colliery Wood, Walkden, Bridgewater Canal, and a house in the Winton area.
