Police visited a house in Bedlinog at 6.21am after concerns were raised for a 38 year-old woman at the Lewis Street address during an emergency call.

A 49 year-old local man has been arrested on suspicion of murder and is currently in police custody.

Officers investigating the incident are appealing to the public for information.
They would like to hear from anybody who was in the vicinity of Lewis Street, Bedlinog, who may have noticed anything suspicious between 8pm on Friday, 25th May, and 6.45am on Tuesday, 29th May, 2018.

This is an isolated incident and at this stage we believe those involved were known to one another.

We would like to hear from anybody who was in the area over the bank holiday weekend between those times.

However insignificant it may seem, what they have to say could be important to our investigation.

The woman’s family are being supported by specially trained officers and the investigation is being conducted by our Major Crime Investigation Team.

– Detective Inspector Stuart Wales, South Wales Police

Anyone with information, is asked to call 101.
