A Leicestershire man has been arrested after the body of a 27-year-old woman was found in a burning flat.

Leah Fray's body was found at the property, at the junction of Mere Road and Diseworth Street, in the Highfields area of the city on Sunday 21 April.

Police have arrested a 56-year-old man in connection who remains in custody as enquiries continue.

While we have arrested a man in connection with Leah’s death, we would still like to speak to anyone who knew Leah or recognises her from the image we have issued.

I would also like to speak to anyone who visited the block of flats in which Leah lived or has knowledge of people visiting those properties.

If you were driving through the area yesterday morning and have a dash cam installed in your vehicle, or you live nearby and have a CCTV camera at your address, please let us know."

– Detective Chief Inspector Michelle Keen, Leicestershire Police
