Mur­der vic­tim’s part­ner in crash

Macclesfield Express - - FRONT PAGE -

●● THE girl­friend of Parklife mur­der vic­tim Robert Hart was in­jured in a three-car smash on the way home from vis­it­ing his grave in Mac­cles­field Ceme­tery for the first time.

Gemma Parry, 32, was rushed to hos­pi­tal with stom­ach and neck in­juries after the ac­ci­dent on Knutsford Road, Chelford.

The crash came just three days after the fu­neral of mu­sic-lover Robert, 26, from Mac­cles­field, who suf­fered fa­tal head in­juries after be­ing at­tacked at Heaton Park fes­ti­val in June. De­spite nu­mer­ous ap­peals – in­clud­ing an ap­pear­ance by Gemma on BBC’s Crime­watch – Robert’s killer has not been caught.

Gemma, pic­tured with Rob, said: “This has been quite hor­rific. The pain is on­go­ing.”

Mar­garet, 60, who was driv­ing and suf­fered chest and neck in­juries, said: “Gemma had wanted to spend some time with Robert. It was her first time to visit the grave since the fu­neral.

“This is a huge set­back for her. She did not want to get into the am­bu­lance. The last time she was in an am­bu­lance was with Robert.”

They were dis­charged from hos­pi­tal later the same day. A spokesman for Cheshire Po­lice ruled out any crim­i­nal in­ves­ti­ga­tion.

She said: “We were called to a three-ve­hi­cle col­li­sion on Knutsford Road in­volv­ing a white BMW con­vert­ible, a white Ford Fi­esta Zetec and a sil­ver Ford Fi­esta Flame.”

Mrs Parry is now ap­peal­ing for wit­nesses to the ac­ci­dent to get in touch with her via email mag­

De­tec­tives are con­tin­u­ing to ap­peal for help to trace wit­nesses about the at­tack on Robert at about 9.15pm on June 7. He was at­tacked after step­ping in when Gemma was re­peat­edly hit with an in­flat­able toy in the huge crowd.

His killer has not yet been caught. The sus­pect is of mixed race, six feet tall, of mus­cu­lar build, in his mid 20s with short hair shaved at the sides. He was clean shaven and wear­ing a dark-coloured jacket and shorts.
