Fresh appeal after woman dies

Detectives investigating the death of an Eastbourne woman have made a fresh appeal for information, four weeks after she was discovered injured.

Emma Crowhurst, 36, of Albion Road was found on the pavement in Chawbrook Road, Eastbourne at the junction with Dudley Road and Havelock Road, near her home address, just before midnight on Sunday 26 April. She'd suffered head injuries.

She was taken to Eastbourne District General Hospital and was transferred to Hurstwood Park Hospital. She died on May 11 and a post mortem examination found she died from the head injury.
