Chrissie was stabbed multiple times in the bedroom of her home. Her body was found lying on her bed with fatal stab wounds after neighbours noticed a bad smell coming from her flat on 4th June 2012.

Her exact date of death is unknown, but she is thought to have been murdered sometime in April 2012.

In October 2013, Romy Maynard, 28, was sentenced to life imprisonment for her murder. Forensic evidence placed Maynard at the flat – his fingerprint was found in the kitchen and there were partial DNA matches on the pillow and the victim’s cardigan she was wearing at the time of her death. Crucially a full DNA profile matching Maynard was recovered from a small bloodstain on the duvet the victim was lying on.

Chrissie was due to undergo reassignment surgery later that year.
