Adam Ellison Murder Appeal Airs on BBC Crimewatch

By on Tuesday, June 26, 2018

The BBC1 programme Crimewatch Roadshow Live aired a dramatic reconstruction of Adam Ellison’s murder along with an appeal for witnesses today (Tuesday 26 June).

Adam Ellison was just 29 when he was stabbed while walking home after a night out in Prescot, in the early hours of Saturday 8 November 2017.

He and his cousins left the Deanes House on Church Street at approximately 12.40am. As they were turning onto Market Place, a green and white Kawasaki KX85 Big Wheel scrambler bike sped past, narrowly avoiding hitting them.

Adam confronted the rider about 50 yards further down the street. The pillion passenger appeared to hit him, knocking him to the ground, before speeding off with the rider, but Adam’s cousins soon discovered he had been stabbed in the neck.

He died in hospital later that morning.

Merseyside Police remain keen to speak to potential witnesses, especially anyone who was in the Old Mill pub on nearby Mill Street that night. The scrambler bike passenger was seen shortly before the incident looking into the pub windows, perhaps searching for someone.

In particular, the Crimewatch appeal revealed CCTV images of a woman (pictured below) police are eager to trace, as she may have seen something vital to helping solve the murder. She is not a suspect.

If you have any information that could help in the investigation into the violent murder of Adam Ellison, call Merseyside Police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
