Man arrested after woman found unconscious in Basildon dies

Detectives have launched a murder enquiry following the death of a woman.

Police received notification of a woman in her thirties who had been admitted to a London hospital in a life-threatening condition on Monday March 10 after she was found unconscious at a Basildon address.

The woman died on Thursday March 14.

A 32-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of her murder.

Detective Chief Inspector Louise Metcalfe, of the Serious Crime Directorate, who is leading the investigation, said: “We know that this will shock the Basildon Community, but at this stage of our investigation, we are not looking for anyone else in connection with the woman’s death.

“We will be carrying out enquiries to help us establish the events that took place before the woman was taken to hospital and I would ask anyone who has information that could help to contact us.

“Any detail, no matter how small it may seem at this stage, could help us.”
