Murder investigation launched after 16 year old found dead in car
A murder investigation has been launched after a 16 year old was found dead in a car following a crash.
The girl was found in the back of a car following a crash between a car and a motorbike. However, her death was not believed to have been caused by the crash according to reports.
Megan Bannister (16) was discovered on the back seat of a black Vauxhall Astra, after the crash at about 11.45am on Sunday in Enderby, Leicestershire, according to The Irish Independent.
Police said the death is not believed to have been the result of the collision between the car and a motorbike, and two men have been arrested on suspicion of murder.
“Megan was our beautiful, talented, loving daughter and sister, and our hearts have been utterly broken by her death,” said the family of the young girl.
Adding, “The thought of life without Megan is impossible to imagine, and we cannot adequately express in words the sense of numbness and overwhelming grief we feel at her loss.”
“She was bright, clever, and a responsible person who loved her family and her many friends. She had a strong self-will and had set her heart on training to becoming a midwife.”
“The family added: “Knowing how confident and determined she was, we have no doubt she would have realised that dream.”
“As a family, we are doing our best to support one another at this harrowing time, and would respectfully ask that we are left alone to grieve in private without intrusion.”
Two men aged 28 and 27 are being questioned by detectives.
