Cops launched a manhunt for the attacker, but he has not yet been found.

Angeline was found dead in her home on January 30, a week after the attack – police have now confirmed.

Heartbroken friends and family have paid tribute to the keen walker, describing her as “amazing” and “one of a kind”.

“You truly touched the hearts and souls of every single person you met along your journey,” wrote one friend on a fundraiser set up in her memory.

Greater Manchester Police said an intruder entered Ms Phillips’ home in Wilbraham Road between 10.30pm and 11pm on Saturday January 23 before raping her.

The man, who was white, 6ft and between 35 and 40-years-old, had a ginger beard and a tattoo on one arm.

He was wearing a black baseball cap with a white tick, a blue jacket, a white t-shirt, jeans and trainers with a silver emblem.

Ms Phillips was being supported by specially-trained officers following the horrific attack, Greater Manchester Police said.

A spokesperson said: “While the investigation has been ongoing, the woman – who was being supported by specialists and partner agencies – has very sadly died.

“Our thoughts are with her loved ones at this devastating time.

“Her death is not being treated as suspicious. The file has been sent to the coroner.

“I would like to use this opportunity to remind people across Greater Manchester that if they or someone they know has been raped or sexually assaulted we encourage them to report it to us or one of our partner agencies so they can access support.”

You're Not Alone

EVERY 90 minutes in the UK a life is lost to suicide.

It doesn’t discriminate, touching the lives of people in every corner of society – from the homeless and unemployed to builders and doctors, reality stars and footballers.

It’s the biggest killer of people under the age of 35, more deadly than cancer and car crashes.

And men are three times more likely to take their own life than women.

Yet it’s rarely spoken of, a taboo that threatens to continue its deadly rampage unless we all stop and take notice, now.

That is why The Sun launched the You’re Not Alone campaign.

The aim is that by sharing practical advice, raising awareness and breaking down the barriers people face when talking about their mental health, we can all do our bit to help save lives.

Let’s all vow to ask for help when we need it, and listen out for others… You’re Not Alone.

If you, or anyone you know, needs help dealing with mental health problems, the following organisations provide support:


Floral tributes have been left outside Ms Phillips’ home after her death on January 30 as more than £2,000 has been raised through a JustGiving page set up to ‘help her family in these tragic circumstances’.

Friend Katy Gee, who set up the fundraiser, wrote: “I couldn’t be any more broken right now, this doesn’t even seem real just yet.

“Ange was a treasure to us all, a true warrior and she deserved more than this but let’s do what we can.”

Dozens of tributes have been left for Ms Phillips on the page by friends and family, describing her as “amazing”, “one of a kind” and an “angel”.

One friend wrote: “You were far too amazing for this world.

“I really hope you have finally found peace wherever you are. You have helped so many people.”

“Ange you lit up every room you walked in. So many amazing crazy memories I’ll hold dear in my heart of our times together. You were one of a kind!” added another friend.

Anyone with information is asked to call police on 0161 856 5168, quoting reference number 61 of January 24, or Crimestoppers anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
