Norfolk: Inquest Verdict Into Broads Deaths
29 January 2013, 14:24
The inquest into the deaths of two people on the Norfolk Broads has recorded a verdict of unlawful killing and suicide.
The bodies were found at the beginning of September after a 13-year-old girl was found alone on a boat moored at Salhouse Broad.
49-year-old Annette Creegan's body was found in the water. She had been strangled, tied up and her body had been weighed down. Police believe she had been in the water a week. Her death has been recorded as an unlawful killing.
41-year-old John Didier's body was also found nearby in the Broad and had weights tied to him. His death has been recorded as a suicide.
Detective Inspector Gary Bloomfield said a thorough investigation was carried out. Outside the inquest, he added that officers had found no evidence of any tension in the relationship and Mr Didier's motive remained unclear.
