Detectives investigating the murder of a 10-year-old girl say they want to question a 44-year-old man who has been charged by police in north Wales.
Lauren's body was found by her grandfather
Schoolgirl Lauren Pilkington-Smith was found dead in woodland near her home on Twist Lane in Leigh, Greater Manchester, on Friday morning.
Lauren died as a result of multiple blows to the head, police said.
The man police want to question has been charged with attempted murder and serious sexual assault in north Wales.
Greater Manchester Police (GMP) also said they wanted to speak to two boys seen playing with Lauren in the street on Thursday evening only hours before her body was discovered.
A spokesman for GMP said: "A post-mortem examination has revealed that 10-year-old Lauren Pilkington-Smith died as a result of multiple blows to the head.
"Police are still investigating what caused the injuries. There does not appear to have been any sexual assault on Lauren."
Lauren's family became concerned on Thursday evening when she did not return home - her body was found by her grandfather on Friday morning.
