A 55-year-old man arrested in connection with the death of a woman in Beyton has been released on police bail.

A 55-year-old man arrested in connection with the death of a woman in Beyton has been released on police bail.

Julie Feetham, 52, died in hospital yesterday after police were called to a property in Thurston Road on Monday after reports she had sustained serious injuries.

The 55 year old man, arrested on suspicion of grievous bodily harm, has been released on police bail until Thursday, November 23.

A Home Office post mortem examination is due to take place tomorrow, Thursday, to establish the cause of death.

Police said yesterday that it was believed the victim and suspect knew each other.

Residents in the quiet cul-de-sac, within earshot of the A14, were left shocked and saddened after discovering one of their neighbours had been badly hurt.

One said: “I didn’t see anything until this morning when there was a police car outside the bungalow.

While another added: “It’s a very quiet cul-de-sac and I know she has not been well at all lately. We keep ourselves to ourselves.”

Many were unaware of the circumstances which led up to an ambulance and police being called to their road.

People described seeing an ambulance turn up at the bungalow between 4.30pm and 5pm on Monday.

Suffolk police officers were later called at around 10pm to reports that a woman in her early 50s had suffered serious head injuries.

A police officer was present outside the property yesterday as residents learnt of the drama that had, unbeknown to them, unfolded.

A couple are believed to live in the bungalow and neighbours said that the area was usually quiet.

They were known to have up to three dogs which they both took out for walks, although the woman was said to have been unwell.

George and Lyn Baldry, who have lived in their property for over 40 years, said they saw an ambulance between 4.30pm and 5pm and were not aware of a police presence until the next morning.

Mr Baldry said: “We saw the ambulance and then the police this morning.

“They have some dogs and I have seen them out being walked by the couple.”

Officers have asked anyone who witnessed what happened or has information which may help 
police to contact them on 101.

Or, contact Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
