Woman arrested on suspicion of murder following death of man in Bootle

Detectives have arrested a woman on suspicion of murder after the death of a man in Bootle in the early hours of this morning, Friday 24 March.

At around 12.50am, officers were called to Balliol Road to reports of a disturbance.

A man in his 30s was taken to hospital where he sadly later died. A Post Mortem will take place later today to determine the cause of his death.

A 38-year-old woman from Bootle was arrested on suspicion of murder and has been taken to custody for questioning as enquiries continue.

Detective Chief Inspector Sue Hinds said, “A woman is in custody in relation to this incident, but we are still keen to speak to anyone who saw or heard a disturbance last night, or may have captured anything when passing, either on CCTV or dashcam footage, or doorbell devices.

“Initially this appears to be a domestic murder, but it is vital that we keep an open mind as to the exact circumstances. Specialist officers will be supporting the man’s family, and you will see officers in the area today to gather information.”
