Beautiful’ carer, 29, ‘stabbed and beaten to death’ before body ‘moved to bed’

A ‘beautiful’ 29-year-old carer was stabbed and beaten to death in her kitchen, before her body was moved to her bed, an inquest heard.

Rochdale coroners’ court was today told that police found efforts had been made to clean the kitchen after Imogen Bohajczuk’s death in Oldham, Greater Manchester.

Officers discovered her body just after noon on March 4 after receiving a report raising concerns about her welfare.

She was pronounced dead at the scene and was identified through her dental records at Royal Oldham Hospital, the Manchester Evening News reports.

Daniel Grant Smith, 41, has been charged with the murder of Ms Bohajczuk, who was born in Stockport.

Police coroners officer Jane Scullion told the inquest: “Imogen was found on her bed with multiple stab wounds and blunt force trauma.

“It appears she was moved from where she had been killed in the kitchen as attempts had been made to clean the kitchen.

“Police enquiries are still ongoing.”

A post mortem report gave the cause of death as multiple stab wounds.

Ms Bohajczuk’s family paid tribute to her earlier this month.

In a statement they said: “The whole family is grieving the death of our beautiful daughter Immy whose life and future has been tragically snatched away from her.”

Smith, of Ashton Road, Oldham, will appear at Manchester Crown Court on October 25.
