Detectives from Merseyside Police have today (Monday 30 January) arrested two men in connection with the murder of Ashley Dale in Old Swan last August.
Two men, aged 40 and 28 and from the Huyton area, were arrested on suspicion of murder of Ashley Dale and possession of a firearm with intent.
At around 12.40am on Sunday, 21 August 2022, officers were called to an address in Leinster Road following reports of concern for a woman at the property. Emergency services attended and found Ashley in the rear garden with a gunshot wound to her body. Ashley was taken to hospital but sadly died a short time later.
Ashley’s family released the following statement on what would have been her 29th birthday last month.
“Ashley’s family would like to emphasise the devastating effects gun crime has had on our family. On what would have been Ashley’s 29th birthday, her loss is beyond words, the family have been torn apart and life can never be ‘normal’ again.
“Her birthday being so close to Christmas made this time of year so special, but without her Christmas is going to be unbearable. Life has become a living nightmare for Ashley’s parents, siblings and family. Her loving, kind and articulate nature showed through with the number of friends she had. We couldn’t have been more proud of Ashley.
“A huge hole has been left, life will never be the same again.
“We miss you Ash with all our hearts and vow that justice for ‘Our Ash’ will be served.”v
