Body in river: Police appeal for witnesses

News from the Lincolnshire Police media brief on the body of a woman found over the weekend in the River Welland near Deeping St James which I posted on yesterday:

Suspicious Death: Police are appealing for information
surrounding the body of a woman, which was found in the River Welland between Crowland and Deeping St James on Saturday 9th December by a member of the public.

A Home Office pathologist conducted a post mortem examination last night and the results have confirmed that she died in suspicious circumstances.

Police want to hear from anyone who may have been travelling on the B1166 between 11pm on Friday night and 11am on Saturday morning can recall seeing any vehicles or persons in the area.

Anyone with any information is asked to contact Lincolnshire Police on 01522 532222 quoting incident number 182 of 9th December.

Police are aware of the links being drawn to the two murders that are being investigated by Suffolk police. It does remain a line of enquiry, however they are only very tenuous links and at this time is not a priority.
