Heartbreaking Letter From Little Lad To His 'Murdered' Mum Released

A little lad whose mum is suspected to have been murdered has written her a letter.

Ellia Arathoon, 29, was found close to the M53 on Thursday after she'd been reported missing eight days earlier. Her son, eight-year-old Reece Dunne, made the note for her after he was informed of her death.

The letter reads: "To mummy, I love you a million times around the world.

"I wish you didn't have to die. I remember playing with you and that made me happy. I know you are an angel now and you can see me all the time.

"I feel sad but I'm going to be brave, love Reece."

Craig Andrew Proctor appeared at Chester Crown Court on Monday and was charged with her murder. He's been remanded in custody and is set to stand trial in April 2017.


Detective Inspector Stephen Jones, from the Cheshire Police Major Investigation team, said: "I would like to thank the public for all the information and support they have provided in relation to this investigation. Incidents like this are thankfully rare, especially in Cheshire, and I appreciate that the public may be concerned about the police activity in the area.

"I want to reassure them that this is an isolated incident. Formal identification is going to take some time but based on the information we have at this time we believe the victim is Ellia."

A spokesman for Cheshire Police told The Sun that the post-mortem was inconclusive.
