Our investigation continues following the death of a woman in Southmead, Bristol.
Officers were called to an address in Greystoke Gardens just before 10.10pm on Tuesday 16 May by the ambulance service.
The death is being treated as suspicious pending the results of further examinations to establish the cause, after an initial post-mortem examination was inconclusive.
The woman has yet to be formally identified but is believed to be a 37-year-old from Southmead. Her next of kin have been informed and are being supported by a specialist family liaison officer at this difficult time. Our thoughts are with them in their loss.
A man in his fifties of no fixed abode was arrested from the address in connection with the investigation on Tuesday night. He remains in police custody after officers obtained a warrant of further detention from the court today, Thursday 18 May.
Residents will continue to see an increased police presence in the area while enquiries continue and anyone with concerns following this tragic incident can speak to officers at the scene.
Investigators are keen to hear from anyone who was in the Greystoke Gardens area between Monday evening, 15 May, and Tuesday night and is yet to speak with officers – especially if you have dashcam or other footage.
