Michael Sellars Suspected Of Killing Gracie Spinks Full Details
His body was discovered a short time later, half a mile away, across fields.
Gracie, 23, had obtained a restraining order against him, according to friends, after he got “obsessed with her” after a date.
Derbyshire Police submitted themselves to the Independent Office of Police Conduct (IOPC) but refused to say why.
Six weeks before Gracie was murdered, a dog walker discovered a murder kit containing knives, an ax, and a message reading “Don’t lie” near the site where she died, according to The Sun on Sunday.
IOPC spokesman said: “We have been notified that a referral is being made by the force. When we receive it, we will carry out an assessment to determine what further action is needed by us.”
According to pals, the pair, who used to work together, had only gone on one date.
They allege she got a restraining order against him because he kept showing up at the stables.
A friend added: “He became obsessed with her and wouldn’t leave her alone.”
When the news of terrible colleague Gracie’s death at XBite in Markham Vale Business Park, Derbyshire, was broken on Friday, devasted employees were in tears.
Paddy, her favorite horse, has already received nearly £7,500 in donations. Friends who are heartbroken are also arranging a vigil in her honor.
A message on the page read: “Gracie was a beautiful girl, at just 23 years old she had already touched so many people’s lives and what gorgeous memories she leaves ”
“She was also so, so stubborn and she’d always stand up for what was right.”
“If you knew Gracie you’d also know she was horsey mad and had the most gorgeous horse called Paddy whom she loved dearly. “Although no amount of money could ever bring Gracie back, I ask that you please donate whatever you can to help.
“Just to make you aware that all donations will be given to Gracie’s family to care for Paddy, her horse who she leaves behind. This is at her family’s request.”
“We all love you so dearly Gracie, behave up there.”
