The IPCC is investigating North Wales Police following the murder of Karen McGraw from Connah’s Quay

NORTH Wales Police is being investigated by the Independent Police Complaints Commission following the death of 50-year-old Karen McGraw who was allegedly murdered last Friday.

Investigators say they will focus on the actions of police officers in the months leading up to Karen’s death.

They will look specifically at police contact between April of this year and Karen’s death on July 24, when she was allegedly stabbed at her home in Connah’s Quay.

This follows an internal review by North Wales Police and an independent assessment carried out by IPCC investigators over the weekend of July 25 and 26.

The matter was referred to the IPCC by North Wales police and it has been decided an independent investigation will be undertaken.

Trevor Ferguson, 49, from Sale, Cheshire, has been charged with her murder and has been remanded in custody.

Tom Davies, IPCC Commissioner said: “This is a tragic case in which Karen McGraw sadly died.

“Our investigation is examining the actions taken by officers and how they responded to the initial concerns raised by Ms McGraw.”
