Greater Manchester Police have launched a murder investigation after the body of a Wakefield taxi industry worker was discovered.


On Wednesday 5 August, the ambulance service were called to Woodlands Street in Cheetham Hill. Paramedics alerted the police at around 2pm after discovering the body of a man.

Officers from North Manchester swiftly launched an investigation into the suspicious death and a post-mortem examination followed. It has since been concluded that the man was seriously assaulted prior to his death.


The man has been formally identified as 50-year-old Nadeem Butt. According to local newspaper sources, Wakefield Express, Mr Butt worked in the taxi industry for a number of years.


No arrests have been made and enquiries are ongoing.

Detective Chief Inspector Liam Boden, of GMP’s Major Incident Team, said: “At the moment we have specialist family liaison officers supporting Nadeem’s loved ones and we would like to express our deepest sympathies to his loved ones at this unimaginably difficult time.


“This is an extremely fast-moving investigation and one that has a dedicated number of detectives working around the clock. We are absolutely determined to get justice and make sure the person responsible is brought to justice.


“A priority for us at the moment is to piece together Nadeem’s last movements and ascertain when Nadeem was most likely to have been killed. Do you know anything that could help us? We need anyone with information to come forward and assist our enquiries as a matter of absolute urgency.”
