NewsStabbing victim in Manchester horror attack is named as heartbroken family pays tribute

A woman who was stabbed to death in Droylsden, Manchester, has been named by police as 51-year-old Michelle Hodgkinson. A man, 28, has been arrested on suspicion of committing murder. Authorities have verified that the individual has been subsequently held under the provisions of the Mental Health Act.

In a moving tribute to her today, Michelle’s family said: “Everyone who knows Michelle is in utter shock at the attack she endured and how horrific her last moments were. 

“Our Shelly B was the most amazing, loving, selfless and funny daughter, mother, mother-in-law, sister, auntie and most recently a nanna.

“It was a privilege to have been known and loved by her. She loved helping people in her community and was known for volunteering as an appropriate adult, her charity work and loved creating hampers to make people smile. 

“She would be there for anyone and the day she was taken from us, she was doing just that – walking to meet her mum to take her shopping and to go for a coffee. 

“Our family and friends are heartbroken. In one moment our world has crumbled and will never be the same. We will support each other, and we thank and appreciate the love and support shown by our family and friends. 

“Please hold your loved ones close, tell them you love them and make memories. 

“Words cannot describe how much she will be missed. Our biggest cheerleader, our confidant, our rock – she will never be forgotten. We love you to the moon and back! We’ll do everything we can to get justice. Love you forever and always!”
