The family of a woman who died in Oldham has paid tribute to her.
On Saturday 10 June 2017, before 3.20am, police were called to Cherry Avenue, Oldham to reports of a body being found.
Greater Manchester Police (GMP) officers attended and discovered the body of a woman. The woman has since been formally identified as 23-year-old Corinne Nicole Hayes from Oldham.
Corinne’s mum, Mandy Hayes, and sister Gemma Hayes, paid tribute to her.
“Corinne was a massive inspiration to us and many others.
“She was not only our daughter and sister but our soulmate too!
“Life won’t ever be the same again, our hearts are broken. All we have now are our memories together and they’ll live on in us forever.
“There was so much love and laughter; there was never a dull day when she was around.
“She was a strong independent woman who worked hard for everything she had and we were all so proud of her.
“She had a bright future ahead of her and everything to look forward to and we will love and miss her always”.
A 33-year-old man was detained under the mental health act. Two other men, both aged 28, were arrested on suspicion of murder and have since been released under investigation.
Police are re-appealing for anyone with information to come forward.
Detective Inspector Kenny Blain of GMP’s Oldham borough has released a statement. He admitted how reading the tributes from her family, made it apparent how much Corinne was loved. “What a devastating time this is for her family”, he said.
Inspector Blain said it’s even more “frustrating for us that we cannot provide them with the answers” they desperately need.
He appealed for people to come forward with information. New evidence would help GMP “piece together the events and begin building answers for Corinne’s family”, he concluded.
