Appeal for witnesses
Adam Ellison Murder
MERSEYSIDE Police Detectives
investigating the fatal stabbing of Adam Ellison, that happened on Saturday, 4
November 2017, are continuing to appeal for witnesses to come forward.
We are told that Adam was reported to have
been walking along a pedestrianised area, in Market Place, Prescot, at 12.40am,
on Saturday, 4 November 2017, with friends, when he became involved in an
argument with people on a motorbike. During the incident he was stabbed in the
neck with an unknown weapon. He was taken to Hospital for surgery, but sadly
passed away that morning.
Detectives are still looking to trace the bike, believed to be a green Kawasaki
KX85 Big Wheel, or anyone who may have seen it being ridden around the Prescot
either before or after Adam was attacked. Officers also want to speak to three
females who it is believed were approached in the area by males on a similar
bike on the same evening.
They are also keen to speak to anyone who was in the Old Mill Public House, on
Mill Street, in Prescot, between 10pm and closing time, on the evening of
Friday, 3 November 2017, as it is believed they could also assist with the
Detective Chief Inspector John Middleton said:- "We are currently
examining a number of lines of enquiry, but would continue to appeal for people
to come forward with any information they may have. Adam's family deserve
to have the answers to what happened to Adam that night. Any bit of information
may prove to be vital to helping us get those answers. The bike was very
distinctive and I am sure that somebody would recognise it or has seen it been
ridden around the Prescot area in the past few weeks and months. We also know
that the Old Mill Public House would have been really busy on that Friday night.
People who were in the pub may have information which could assist us and I
would ask them to get in touch."
Anyone with information is asked to contact
