BRITISH Transport Police (BTP) officers investigating a woman’s death in Chester are appealing for information from the public.
Kerry O’Brien’s death is currently being treated as non-suspicious but officers are trying to establish her movements in the area close to Victoria Road on Friday, June 10.
BTP officers were called to the line near to Victoria Road at 5.39am after a train driver reported seeing a woman’s body on the tracks.
Cheshire Constabulary officers and paramedics from the North West Ambulance Service also attended but Kerry, aged 34 and from Chester, was pronounced dead at the scene.
Sergeant Sean Morgan, based at Crewe BTP station, said: “As part of the file we are preparing for the coroner, we are making enquiries to establish the full circumstances leading up to Kerry’s death, which we are not treating as suspicious.
“What we do know is that she was last seen close to Victoria Road around 1.50am on Friday, 10 June but was not seen again until her body was discovered by the tracks.
“We believe there were a number of people who may have been passing through the area and who saw Kerry and I would appeal to those people to contact us as they may have vital information which could help us build up a full picture of events prior to the incident.”
Anyone with information which they believe can assist should contact British Transport Police on 0800 40 50 40, quoting reference B4/NWA of 15/06/2011.
