Police have launched a murder inquiry after the body of a woman was found at an address in Wolverhampton on Friday 16 February.

Officers arrived at a house in Rookery Lane in the Penn area of the city just after 4pm to find a woman, believed to be aged 38, unconscious.

Emergency services arrived at the property but nothing could be done to revive the woman and she was pronounced dead at the scene.

The house has been sealed off for a full forensic examination and house-to-house enquiries are being carried out.

The woman's family are being supported by officers from the force's Family Liaison Unit.

Police are now urging anybody who may have seen or heard anything suspicious near the address to contact them.
