Woman’s body found at side of road in suspected murder
The body of a woman has been discovered by the side of a busy road near the A3 slip road out of Gillford, Surrey. The remains were found in undergrowth on Monday at around 3 pm by a passerby.
The woman is believed to be in her 40s but has not yet been identified. A murder investigation has been launched and two men have been arrested. They were taken into custody last night.
DCI Emma Vickers said: ‘We are investigating this as a murder which we believe has been committed elsewhere with the victim’s body left in this location.
‘We are still trying to determine how long the body had been there for and we are working with forensic experts as part of our inquiries. We will issue further updates as soon as we are in a position to do so.’
She added: ‘While our investigation is in the early stages, we would like to reassure local residents that there is a dedicated team of officers working round the clock to establish exactly what has happened and we will provide more information as and when we are able to.’
The slip road will remain closed until further notice and a cordon will be in place for at least another day.
