What happened to Elle Edwards?

Elle Edwards was a beautician who was the victim of a shooting outside a pub on midnight of Christmas eve. She was shot fatally in the head shortly before midnight last year while celebrating with her friends. She was at the Lighthouse Pub when this fatal incident happened. She died shortly after at the hospital. 

All four people who were directly and indirectly involved were arrested. 20-year-old Thomas Waring was arrested and charged with possessing a prohibited weapon and assisting an offender.

A 23-year-old man from Heswal and a woman from Tranmere were arrested on suspicion of taking part in the shootings but both were granted bail and released.

The individual who shot her, Connor Chapman, 22, has been charged with murder and is due to stand trial on June 7. 

It wasn’t believed that she was the target but just a bystander who got hurt in the process along with 4 other people.

All the family members and her friends paid tribute to their loved one, who they will always remember. They all described her as a beautiful woman who was gone too soon. 

Elle Edwards parents Tim Edwards

Elle Edwards father was Tim Edwards, and her mother’s name is Gaynor Edwards. She also has a sister named Lucy. Her father has set up an anti-gun foundation and has thus participated in the movement. He has also started a walking challenge to support a project called “weapons Down, Gloves up.” 

The challenge’s main reason is to protect the people against guns and to remove the use of guns in America because in the end, its only the victims and their family members who suffer in the process.
