Died 3rd June 2014
Yvonne Fox (87) was found dead at home in Barley Croft, Alsager, South Cheshire on 3rd June 2014. She was reported to have suffered head injuries.
A 54 year old man has been arrested on suspicion of the murder and is being questioned by detectives. Cheshire Police confirmed he was known to Ms Fox.
Police were called to Ms Fox’s home in Barley Croft at around 1pm on Tuesday after a member of the public raised concerns about her welfare. The Reverend Pete Howard, minister of Alsager Community Church, had known her for years. He said: “Yvonne came into our coffee shop quite regularly, almost daily. She used to sit at the table known as ‘table five’, which held up to seven to eight people and was quite a little community in itself. We are shocked and saddened at what has happened. She seemed a very lovely lady and she will be greatly missed.”
Police hope to speak to anyone who might have seen Ms Fox between Saturday 31st May and Tuesday 3rd June 2014.
Anyone with information which may be of help to the investigation please call Cheshire Police on 101 quoting incident number 393 of the 3/6/14.
