Williams shared, “By midnight, she had been drinking shots and so on and she was a bit drunk, so her friend has taken her back to the hotel to sleep it off, and then he's gone back out. It seems she has got up out of the bed confused, not knowing where she is, and she's opened the door of the wardrobe maybe thinking it is the toilet or the door to go back out of the room. It was a big, old, heavy wardrobe and it's fallen on her and crushed her windpipe.”
 
On Chloe’s loss, her heartbroken mother said, “She loved animals, she had a little dog called Archie she was obsessed with. There are so many photos of them together. My little nickname for her was birdy. She was so petite and little, and when she ate she was like a little bird. She was quiet, she was somebody who didn't speak unless it needed saying.”
 
Liverpool Council spokesperson revealed, “We can confirm that we are carrying out a health and safety investigation into a death at the Adelphi Hotel on September 10." Currently, Britannia Hotels operates the famous Adelphi, which has hosted many celebrities and personalities from the past, including former Prime Ministers Winston Churchill, and Harold Wilson. The other famous names include artists such as Frank Sinatra, Judy Garland, and Bob Dylan.

Following this tragic death, Detective Chief Inspector Lynsay Armbruster commented, “We are in the very early stages of the investigation, and are trying to determine the circumstances around the young woman's death." “I would appeal to anyone who was in the hotel in the early hours of this morning who may have seen, or heard anything, at all to come forward," she added. As per the police report, three men were initially taken into custody, during the investigation by Merseyside Police, but were later released after they concluded that Chloe Haynes died "accidentally."
