Thank you for the idea @CoverMeCagney
Just made a donation in Libby’s memory
Just caught up with this news since following Libby's story from the beginning but distracted by personal stuff and Brexit drama last few weeks.
I feel so sad, especially for her parents, she came from my neck of the woods.
Still so many questions, if she'd been dumped in the river near Oak Rd playing fields would her body really have made it all the way into the estuary ?
Or was she thrown in off a bridge much nearer the mouth of the river Hull ... either way not suicide or accident.
I hope police swiftly find enough forensic evidence to convict the guilty person.
That’s a very thoughtful suggestion Cagney
Thank you. I've been trying to go through all the MSM links, there's so many of them with similar headlines.
I know most people are convinced it's Libby and PR in the Haworth street cobweb CCTV but I've never been convinced..and numerous newspapers have stated she was last seen on Beresford Avenue. It could be shoddy reporting or it could be that they have more info than we do.
Anytime someone tried pointing out that her last known sighting released by MSM/police wasn't on the Haworth bench/CCTV it got ignored or dismissed and I don't entirely know why?
I really don't think police would have allowed ITV to release the cobweb CCTV if it was important to this case.

And the police themselves say Libby was last seen on Beresford and even circled it on this page -

It could possible be her in his car but the search of the alley suggests to me she was on foot.
Deepest condolences to all people who have lost a loved one here.....terrible end to our hopes
Totally agree with the comments about suicide and mental health in general (have personal experience of being at the bottom of that dark pit)
However for now we should just regret the loss of a bright young light,however it came about....thoughts to her parents,friends and family on what must be the worst day of their lives
I agree with what you're saying, but the reason people are dismissing it isn't due to any kind of stigma in this case.
I wholeheartedly agree that stigma surrounding mental health needs to stop and I pray one day soon it is treated as a physical ailment alongside broken bones and flu, I think what those of us who struggle with self harm and depression are trying to state in this case is that right now, the available clues point to Libby coming to harm from someone else and it would be appropriate to explore that Avenue first .. Also, suicide is not being dismissed here due to stigma, quite the opposite.
To those who suffer and watch our children suffer with mental health it feels akin to the blaming of a sexual assault victim because they wore a certain type of outfit. Just because Libby had suffered with her mental health doesn’t mean she’s walked into the water that night ... we knew water was likely and given what we know, let’s try and exclude the more obvious scenario involving a sexual deviant first.
We need to keep Libby and her family, friends and the police force, RNLI and all others effected in our thoughts tonight. But for tonight, let's let everything rest - I think we should stop the analysing tonight for respect, its a new day tomorrow.
Thank you.. the Mail seem to have removed the article though..strange. Maybe nothing, maybe not.
It says "The family have been informed" on a story about an unidentified body, which I thought suggested they were only waiting on official confirmation of a strong belief it is her. I guess it is not as telling as I thought reading it back. I'm sure they warn the family should any body be found, it was the wording that seemed ominous to me that's all.
I completely feel and understand what you are saying. In my previous post I said I was a local, but in fact I have only lived in Hull for 7 years, I'm originally Welsh. But Hull is a wonderful, friendly and welcoming city, I found a love for the place instantly and have classed myself as a 'local' in my 'newly adopted hometown' for a while now.
The people of this small northen city have a pride and a warmth that I'm sure isn't experienced in many places. I can see why Libby also loved it here, just such a tragedy that her story ended like this. You are so right when you say we have lost one of our own, I hope Libby will always be remembered for the bright, smiling happy girl we have seen in pictures and not for the circumstances or the events that lead to yesterdays awful discovery.
Just caught up. My thoughts are with her family.
It is incredibly tragic that poor Libby has been found deceased, but it would have been even worse if she had never been found at all.
Libby is finally going to go home to her family, even though it is in the saddest possible way.
Rest in peace beautiful girl.
Now that the body has been found, the missing gap from that car CCTV footage to when she was found yesterday should start to unravel.
The police will get to the bottom of this story quite quickly now she has been found you'd expect. Next step will be how she died and when.
This story has saddened many becouse it shouldn't have happened. If it is foul play, Humberside police I am sure will get to the root of it, find the perpetrator and land a solid conviction.
It's the least we can now do for her.
With the sad news we received today let's remember there may be lots of rumor and speculation.
If you are posting information as fact, posting a picture, etc. include a link to your source. MSM and LE sources are required as are the allowed Social Media sources found here.
2nd hand or 3rd hand information is not allowed and is considered rumour.
If you see a post which violates TOS, report the post and do not respond to it.
Thanks all for keeping things on track

A thought provoking post on an emotional night
Within these threads, so many angles have been covered that one must be close to what happened. So it’s probably a night to pause and think of LS and her family and wait for further news with relatively open minds
The Police have said several times the last known sighting of her was at 12:09 on or at the junction of Haworth Street. See below: The last statement I think before being found.

I'm not sure if because we're so cut off from other major cities or because we're a port city with lots people coming and going.
In this tragic story. The shining light has been the spirit and togetherness of this City.
