An urgent manhunt is underway after a woman was ‘murdered’ in Merseyside yesterday – but the killer is still on the loose.

This is the man police ‘urgently need to speak to’ after a 29-year-old woman was stabbed to death.

Merseyside Police have made an appeal to find 23-year-old Adam Brettle in connection with the brutal killing on Swan Avenue.

Officers were called to an address in Derbyshire Hill, at 11.40am on Saturday to a report of an assault at the address, Liverpool Echo reports.

When they arrived they found that a woman at the address had suffered multiple stab wounds.

Officers and paramedics gave the woman medical assistance and the Air Ambulance crew also attended in a bid to save the woman’s life, but sadly she was pronounced dead at the scene a short while later.

A Home Office post mortem will take place to establish the cause of death and next of kin have been informed.

The scene remains cordoned off for forensic examinations and officers are carrying out house-to-house inquiries in the area.

Detectives, who believe the offender was known to the victim, say 23-year-old Adam Brettle from Warrington may have vital information. They are asking him to come forward immediately to assist.

Detective Chief Inspector John Williams said: "Brettle is someone we are very keen to speak to as soon as possible, as our investigation into this tragic murder continues.

“I would advise the public not to approach Brettle directly if you see him, but to call police on 999 immediately so that we can take the necessary action.

“I also want to make it clear that having any current association with Brettle will bring police officers to your door, so I would encourage anyone with information to do the right thing and come forward as soon as possible. Officers would ask anyone who may come into contact with Brettle to contact the police on 999."

Anyone with information on his whereabouts is asked to contact Merseyside Police social media desk via Twitter @MerPolCC or Facebook Merseyside Police CC.
