Woman found dead - Wigan
Tuesday 27th May, 2008

Detectives investigating the death of a 47-year-old woman in Wigan have arrested a 28-year-old man on suspicion of assault.

Shortly before 12.30pm on Sunday 25 May 2008, police were called to a house on Anderton Way, New Springs, Wigan, following a report that a body had been found.

Officers attended and discovered the body of a 47-year-old woman. It is believed she had been subjected to a vicious assault before her death.

The pathologist's early findings suggest that the woman died of natural causes, but more tests are being carried out.

The 28-year-old man arrested remains in police custody for questioning.

Anyone with any information about the assault is asked to contact Wigan CID on 0161 856 7254 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
