Police officers have launched a murder investigation following the death of a woman in Sandiacre.

Amy Gough (34) of Sandringham Road in Sandiacre was taken from her home to the Queen’s Medical Centre in Nottingham on Sunday March 29 where she later died.

A post mortem examination, carried out by a Home Office pathologist, on Tuesday April 7 determined that her death is suspicious.

A 45-year-old man from Sandiacre was arrested on suspicion of murder on Wednesday April 8 and was released on police bail the next day.

“I’d like to hear from anyone who saw Amy between Tuesday March 24 and Sunday March 29.

It’s very important that we piece together her movements in and around Sandiacre and possibly in Derby in the days before her death."

– Detective Inspector Graham Prince
