Her body was found at Poynton Park Lake near Macclesfield, Cheshire, at 3.45am this morning.

Within hours police had arrested a 43-year-old man on suspicion of her murder.

Friends said the devoted mum from Wilmslow, Cheshire, “doted” on her children — and she was called a “perfect” parent.

Mrs McKie’s Facebook page had dozens of touching family snaps including a man believed to be her 43-year-old husband Darren.

He has also served as an officer with Greater Manchester Police.

One pal described them as “such a beautiful beautiful family”.

Paying tribute to her, Detective Inspector Adam Waller said: “Leanne was a mother of three young children and a serving police officer in Greater Manchester Police.

“Our thoughts at this difficult time are with Leanne’s family, friends and colleagues.”

Earlier the Cheshire Police Det Insp said her death “appears to be an isolated incident”.

“A 43-year-old man has been arrested in relation to the incident; he is assisting officers with their inquiries”, he said.

No other suspects are being investigated and a cordon remains in place around the popular beauty spot.
