The nurse plummeted to her death after falling from the viaduct in dramatic scenes last week.
Emma Barton, played by Gillian Kearney, seemingly committed suicide after being consumed with guilt after discovering she killed her own son Finn.
However, the police recently revealed that Emma was pushed and that her death is now a murder investigation.
In Thursday’s bumper episode of the ITV soap, the police crashed Finn’s funeral after discovering key details about the last moments of Emma’s life.

Just as Ross and Pete Barton were carrying their little brother’s coffin inside the church, the police arrived with sirens blaring and revealed the news that Emma Barton didn’t commit suicide after all.
However, despite the dramatic events onscreen, livid Emmerdale viewers hit out at the police’s timing and branded them “disrespectful” and “cold insensitive” for halting the funeral.
“How disrespectful the police showing up during the funeral! #Emmerdale,” commented one angry viewer.
While another asked: “Couldn’t the police wait until the funeral was over? Talk about bad timing! #Emmerdale.”
