A 42-year-old man remains in police custody this morning on suspicious of murder after a woman was found dead at a property in east Suffolk last night.
Police were called by a resident of Lark Rise, Martlesham Heath, just before 9pm. They reported concerns for a person living nearby whose family could not get a response from the house.
Officers gained access to the property and found a dead woman inside. Her death is being treated as suspicious and a postmortem examination will take place “in due course” to establish its cause.
Earlier, at around 6.35pm, police attended an address in Tunstall Green, near Woodbridge, after the ambulance service reported a man at the property with injuries to his wrists.
The man was taken to Ipswich Hospital for treatment.
Following the discovery of the woman’s body and information received, police arrested the man from the Tunstall Green address in connection with woman’s death.
He is currently being held in for questioning at the Martlesham Police Investigation Centre.
