'Traumatised'

“A post-mortem examination has yet to take place but I am treating this as murder," said Detective Chief Inspector John Caldwell.

“My thoughts go out to the victim’s family, including her sister who will no doubt have been left traumatised by the discovery of her sister’s body and I’m appealing to anyone who has information to contact detectives at Serious Crime Branch on 101 quoting reference 573 13/11/18.”
