Police renew appeals for information on woman's death

Police investigating the death of a woman found in a lake close to the University of East Anglia in Norwich say they've had little response to appeals for information.

Norfolk Police have received just 10 calls from the public and several enquiries from other police forces across the country concerning missing people, which have all been ruled out as lines of enquiry.

The woman, whose body was discovered on Thursday morning floating face-down in the water at the UEA, is described as white, 5ft 7, of slim build and aged in her late 30s or early 40s.

The death is being treated as unexplained.

We’ve had a limited response from the public and I would continue to urge anyone who believes they may have information concerning the identity of the woman to come forward.

We know this area of the campus is used regularly by members of the public including dog walkers and I would encourage anyone who has seen anything out of the ordinary in this area within the last week or so to come forward.”

– Detective Sergeant Dave Freeman, Norwich CID
