Man arrested on suspicion of murder of Jacqueline Rutter

Detectives have today (Thursday 2 March) arrested a man in connection with the fatal shooting of 53-year-old Jacqueline Rutter in Wirral last October.

A 21-year-old man, of no fixed abode, was arrested earlier today on suspicion of murder and given conditional bail pending further enquiries.

Four other men previously arrested in connection with this investigation, who are aged 21, 25, 44 and 52, along with a 23-year-old woman, all remain on conditional bail.

Merseyside Police is continuing to appeal for information in connection with the murder, which occurred at a property in Meadowbrook Road, Moreton, in the early hours of Sunday 30 October 2022.

Detective Chief Inspector Steve McGrath, the Senior Investigating Officer, said, “This latest arrest shows that we are making progress in this ongoing investigation and we will continue to explore all lines of enquiry.

“If you know anything and have yet to come forward, please do so. What you may know or have captured may seem insignificant, but could still form a vital part of this investigation.”
