Murder investigation launched following the death of Gerald Corrigan
DCI Brian Kearney said: “First I would like to express my sincere condolences to Marie, Gerald Corrigan’s partner, Neale and Fiona his two children and the wider Corrigan family. This is truly devastating news and the thoughts of the entire investigation team are with the Corrigan family.”
“On April 19th 74-year-old Gerald Corrigan was shot and suffered truly horrific injuries. Since then he has shown tremendous courage and determination whilst being treated at the Royal Stoke University Hospital. Sadly, early yesterday morning, Saturday 11th May, Gerald succumbed to his injuries and died with his family by his side.”
“North Wales Police have now launched a murder investigation. However we continue to keep an open mind in relation to the sequence of events that led to Gerald’s death.”
“I am very grateful to the public for the response to previous press appeals. We have teams of officers following up the information you have kindly provided. North Wales Police continue to pursue a number of lines of enquiry.”
“I would like now to issue a renewed appeal to anyone with any information whatsoever to come forward and speak to my investigation team in total confidence.”
North Wales Police request that the Corrigan family’s privacy is respected at this tragic time.
