Body found: Police statement

Detective Chief Inspector Ian Pollard from the Surrey and Sussex Major Crime Team, who is leading the investigation, said: "While initially it was thought that we were dealing with a sudden death, officers became increasingly suspicious of the circumstances.

"As yet, the cause of her death is unexplained and we are awaiting the results of a post mortem that will take place on Tuesday.

"However, our enquiries lead us to believe that this was not a natural death and a murder enquiry has been launched."
