However, the police issued a statement yesterday indicating that all lines of inquiry were being pursued, including whether or not this was a hate crime.

This morning, police issued a new statement confirming that a 15-year-old girl from Warrington and a 15-year-old boy from Leigh have been charged with murder.

“A 15-year-old girl from Warrington and a 15-year-old boy from Leigh have been charged with murder in connection with the death of 16-year-old Brianna Ghey,” the police said.

“On Saturday afternoon, February 11, 2023, Brianna’s body was discovered in Linear Park in Culcheth.

“The Crown Prosecution Service reminds all parties that criminal proceedings have been initiated against both 15-year-olds and that they are entitled to a fair trial.

“It is crucial that there be no online reporting, commentary, or dissemination of information that could in any way prejudice these proceedings.”

In memory of the teenager, candlelit vigils organized by members of the transgender community will be held in cities across the United Kingdom.

GoFundMe confirmed that over 4,500 people from 41 countries have contributed to the fundraising efforts.

In a statement released after Brianna’s death, her family described her as a “much-loved daughter, granddaughter, and baby sister.”

The statement continued, “She was a larger-than-life personality who left an indelible mark on all who met her.

“Brianna was attractive, witty, and amusing. Brianna was courageous, courageous, and one-of-a-kind.

The loss of her young life has left a tremendous void in our family, and we are certain that her teachers and friends will feel the same way.

After the incident, several police vans were seen parked in the surrounding area, and several uniformed officers were seen patrolling the park.
