Suspected murder in Blakemore

Picture from Shropshire Star
A young woman has been found dead in Blakemore today.

The police are treating the death as suspicious and have a man in custody suspected of her murder.  It is believed that the woman was pregnant.

The police haven't released any more details and the post mortem was inconclusive.

People don't get arrested on suspicion of murder without good cause so there's need to worry unduly and Brookside is still, despite this terrible crime, a statistically safe place to live.

My condolences go to the victim's family and friends.
