VICTIM SUZY CALLED OFF WEDDING PLANS; She's murdered two weeks later.


MURDERED multi-millionaire's daughter Suzy Healey had called off her wedding two weeks ago, it emerged yesterday.

The shock cancellation is thought to have formed a crucial part of the police investigation into her brutal death.

Her body was found at her home on Monday by a friend who helped look after her horses.

Suzy, 39, whose dad Malcolm built the Hygena kitchens empire, is believed to have been strangled.

Detectives were yesterday still quizzing a man of 37, picked up three hours after her death. They refused to disclose if he was her former boyfriend.

Police said she died in a domestic incident at her home in Ellerker, near Hull. She had been in a relationship for six months.

The Rev Peter Falkener, of St Oswald's in Hotham, said: "I had heard Suzy was to be married.

"I understood she didn't want to be married in Ellerker. She didn't ask me to marry them."

Her daughters Jasmine, 16, and Angelica, 14, are thought to be on holiday.

Suzy's dad, who is worth pounds 700million, and is one of Britain's richest men, lives in Hotham, six miles from her, but would not comment yesterday.

The family said in a statement: "This is a terrible shock. They said they needed time to "allow us to grieve and come to terms with our tragic loss".

Suzy had turned her estate into an animal sanctuary and nature reserve four years ago with government grants.

She did not use the main three storey house but lived in a cottage, converted from outbuildings. She grew her own vegetables and kept animals.

It was a friend who helped muck out her horses who raised the alarm when she could not get an answer at the cottage.
