Emmerdale murder Ross Barton suspect makes shock exit from the village

EMMERDALE'S Ross Barton made a shock exit from the village today as the investigation into his mother's death heats up.

Ross is one of the suspects for his mum Emma's murder and Tuesday night's episode revealed he he was the one who found her suicide note.

Tonight's instalment saw his brother Pete (Anthony Quinlan) accuse him of knowing what Emma did before she plummeted to her death off the viaduct.

Ross couldn't handle the pressure after he failed to reveal he found the note and decided to skip town.

Pete tried to talk him out of it, telling him: "If this is about yesterday then I’m sorry, but I do believe you.”

He told him that fleeing the village would make him look more suspicious as Ross insisted he didn't know Emma had killed their dad before she was murdered.

He said: "I didn't know what mum did to dad. I'm not sticking around here, too many accusations flying around."

Pete told him to stay and that leaving would make him look guilty.

Ross defended his decision saying: "Adam's already mouthing off. Everyone knows what mum did, so I am not sticking around to have it pinned on me."

Adam then knocked on the front door, leading Ross to leg it out the back before Pete could stop him.

As he demanded to know where Ross was, Pete said he didn't know and Adam quickly realised he had fled and decided to tell the police in the hopes of getting them off his back after his arrest.

It all kicked off during last night's episode when a major clue left viewers convinced Ross killed his mum.

A flashback scene revealed that Ross (Michael Parr) did have the letter Emma wrote before her death – as he was pictured reading it.

But when confronted by his brother Pete about the confessional note, which somehow ended up in Adam’s car, Ross denied having seen it.

Ross was of course seen at the scene of the crime when he ran away and he torched some of her stuff before the police investigation began.

And now fans think the latest flashback well and truly points the finger at Ross, who many now believe is trying to set up Adam (Adam Thomas).

One fan wrote: “So it looks like Ross has framed Adam #emmerdale.”

While another commented: “Everything is pointing at Ross being the killer and I can't cope 😩 #Emmerdale.”

And a further person remarked: “So it looks like Ross did put the note in Adam car #Emmerdale.”

Emma (Gillian Kearney) was pushed to her death in a gripping episode last month, with fans initially believing schoolgirl Gabby Thomas (Rosie Bentham) was the angel-faced killer.

But in recent episodes Adam found himself being quizzed by police and now he's desperate to clear his name.

Meanwhile, actor Michael Parr has opened up about why his character could be guilty.

He said: “Ross could be one of the suspects because there has also been this underlying tension between Ross and Emma.

“She tried to suffocate him when he was a little boy, she has caused so much trouble breaking him and Debbie up, breaking him and Layla up and now she’s murdered Finn."

He added: “Underneath it all, he has a heart. He has grown up a lot in recent years.”
