CHESHIRE POLICE - VERA ANDERSON APPEAL

APPEAL FOR INFORMATION REGARDING CHESHIRE POLICE MURDER INVESTIGATION - VERA ANDERSON 25/08/1991 30 ANNIVERSAY APPEAL.


Details of Incident

Appeal for information on the anniversary of the death of a woman from Widnes

 

Detectives have renewed their appeal for information on 30 years since 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. However, despite extensive and exhaustive enquiries over the years, no-one has ever been convicted in connection with her death.

 

On the 30th anniversary of Vera’s death, officers are appealing for anyone who has any information about the case, to come forward.

 

Detective Inspector Adam Waller  said: “Vera’s family have been left devastated by her death and have had to live with what happened since 1991.

 

“The family have never received closure from Vera’s death and I would appeal to anyone with information to come forward.  Someone must know what had happened that day and I would appeal to them to come forward.  We appreciate that 30 years is a long time ago but the smallest detail may help us in bringing justice for Vera and her family."
