Murder Investigation of Adrian ELLINGFORD, Chelmsford on Monday 25th July.

Appeal for information relating to the murder of Adrian ELLINGFORD at Nelson Grove, Chelmsford

A man found dead in Chelmsford earlier this week has been described as a “much loved husband, father, son, and brother.”

Adrian ELLINGFORD, who was 44 years-old, died at an address in Nelson Grove in the early hours of Monday 25th July.

In a statement, his family said: “Our hearts are broken.

“Adrian is, and always will be, a much loved husband, father, son and brother. 

“He has been taken from his family and friends far too soon.

“While we try to come to terms with our sudden and devastating loss, we as the family ask for privacy at this extremely difficult time.”


Twenty-five year-old Marek HECKO, of Rookes Crescent, Chelmsford has been charged with murder.

We continue to appeal for information about Adrian’s death.

We have already spoken to a number of people nearby to obtain accounts, but we need anyone who witnessed the incident, has dashcam, or doorbell footage between 11pm Sunday 24th July, and 4.30am Monday 25th July, to get in touch as soon as possible.
