The family of the man whose torso was found in Kersal Dale in Salford have paid tribute to him after his ‘untimely death’.

After the torso of Stuart Everett was discovered on 4 April, further parts of his body were found in four different areas of the city.

GMP launched an extensive murder inquiry and a huge search effort to correctly identify Stuart and notify his family of his death.

It’s thought the 67-year-old died at an address in Winton at the end of March.

His family have now issued a tribute to his ‘endearing character’ and thanked the public for their messages of support.


In a statement issued through GMP, they said: “We as a family are united in our grief over the devastating news of Stuart’s untimely death and the manner in which he died.

“He was a unique and endearing character who always put his family and many friends first.


“He loved his food his garden his music and a flutter on the horses, we have been overwhelmed with the messages of support and are thankful that so many people thought so much of him.

“He did not deserve to die the way he did and will be eternally missed. R.I.P.”

Two men have been charged with the murder of Stuart Everett.


The searches across Salford at sites at Blackleach Reservoir, Linneyshaw Colliery Wood, Bridgewater Canal, and a house in the Winton area of the city, as well as a warehouse in Bury, are continuing.

GMP is continuing to receive details from the public that may assist these searches. Any further information should be given by calling 101 and quoting log number 2695 of 4 April 2024.
