Body Found in Canal Street Water Identified
39 year old man named as victim.
Police have identified the man who was found dead in Manchester’s gay village on Sunday.
The body was found to be that of 39 year old Sean Markey from Newton Heath.
A member of the public initially alerted the police of the body in Canal Street’s waters on Sunday afternoon.
But initial reports that the body was in a bag in the canal were later denied by officials.
Detectives are still trying to find out how Mr Markey died.
One witness was Bob Ramsbottom, the landlord of the New Union pub near Princess Street.
“We were upstairs on Friday night at around 10.30pm when we heard a very big splash”, he said.
“I looked out of the window – we saw someone walking away over the bridge”, he added.
The news comes days after five people were sentenced for killing a man in the same area in June last year.
