Detectives are appealing for help from the public to piece together the last movements of a 35 year old woman prior to her death.

Claire Anderson was found unconscious and unresponsive by emergency services at a house on Thorne Road, Doncaster, just before 9.30pm on Saturday 11th July. She was pronounced dead a short time later.

Officers arrested a 38- year-old man at the scene on suspicion of murder. He has now been released under investigation.

A post mortem carried out yesterday was inconclusive.


Temporary Detective Chief Inspector Mark Oughton, who is in charge of the inquiry, said his thoughts are with Claire’s family, who are being supported by our specialist family liaison officers at this time.

My officers are working hard to piece together her movements in the days leading up to her death. We are particularly interested in hearing from anyone who has information about where she was between 8.30pm on Thursday 9 July and 9pm on Saturday 11 July. If you know where Claire was, or saw her between those days and times, then I’d urge you to speak to us.
