Detectives in GMP’s Major Incident Team have reached a point in their investigation where they believe the victim to be Stuart Everett aged 67, who resided in the local area.

The formal identification process is yet to take place but DNA samples have been sent away for urgent forensic analysis, this will be able to provide us with certainty and put us in a place where we can confirm the identity of the remains we have found.

Specially trained Family Liaison Officers from GMP have been deployed to support Stuart’s family during this incredibly difficult time, in the last 48 hours they have heard the most devastating news that anyone could hear, and our thoughts remain with them as they begin to process this.

Our fast-moving investigation has rapidly progressed over the last three days, and throughout the investigation, we have seen many resources deployed to Salford.

The resources will continue to be deployed as we look to recover more evidence and build a fuller picture of the circumstances that led to our victim’s death.

The remains found at the other three locations in Salford are still to be tested, but we are confident they belong to the same victim.

Detective Superintendent Lewis Hughes from GMP’s Serious Crime Division, said: “My thoughts and the thoughts of officers and staff across Greater Manchester Police are with Stuart’s family at this traumatic time. Family Liaison Officers are supporting them through each update in our investigation.

"On behalf of Stuart's loved ones, I ask the public and the press to please respect their wishes for peace and privacy while they process this most devastating news. 

“My officers and detectives, alongside additional resources from across the force, have worked tirelessly over the last three days to secure charges.

“We are grateful for the public’s continued help and support throughout this case. We understand the shockwaves this has caused throughout the community and beyond, and we hope you are reassured by the pace of our investigation and also our large police presence in the areas as we continue to make enquiries.

“We have officers drawn from different teams and units in GMP who have helped us search and their efforts do not go unnoticed, and they have all played an important role to help us get to this stage in our investigation.

“We said right at the start that our investigation will not stop until we have every stone unturned, and this continues to be the case. Our investigation has been a huge process so far, and we will continue to push forward in our enquiries to find answers for Stuart’s family.”

Michal Jaroslaw Polchowski (25/04/1956) and Marcin Majerkiewicz (10/04/1982) both of Worsley Road, Eccles, have been charged with murder. They are due to appear at Manchester Crown Court this morning (30 April 2024).
