Family say ‘gorgeous’ baby at centre of murder probe ‘melted hearts of everyone’

The family of a two-week-old baby at the centre of a murder probe say their "hearts are broken" after she died in hospital.

Tiny Felicity-May Harvey, from Heywood, Greater Manchester, was a "gorgeous baby" who "melted the hearts" of everyone who met her.

Greater Manchester Police were called to a report of concern for the youngster just before 6.30pm on January 8.

She was later taken to hospital where she died three days later, leaving her family in pieces.

In a tribute to Felicity-May her loved ones said her "cleft lip and palate" made her "extra special" and she was the "most happy and content little girl."

Loved ones said she will always be "loved by her mum, sisters and family" and Felicity-May’s death has since left "a huge void."

Her family also said it is "not fair" that she was taken from them and that she only got to shine "for only a short time."

Calling her their "special star," the family said when they look through the clouds they will know the two-week-old is the “brightest star shining."

In a statement, the family said: "Our hearts are broken after losing our precious baby girl, Felicity-May. She was a gorgeous baby and always so alert, looking around with her big blue eyes.

"She was absolutely beautiful and incredibly brave and she melted the hearts of everyone who met her.

"What made her extra special was her cleft lip and palate, and despite the challenges of this she was the most happy and content little girl.

"She was and always will be loved by her mum, sisters and family and there is a huge void in all our hearts and lives now that she has been taken from us.

"She was our special star, and it is not fair that she shone brightly for only a short time. When we look up at the sky, we will look through the clouds and know that the brightest star shining is our Felicity-May.

"Rest in peace baby girl. Sleep tight. Until we meet again, our precious angel."

A 24-year-old man arrested on suspicion of murder and has since been released on bail pending further inquiries, Greater Manchester Police said.
