Investigation launched after woman dies in Wolverhampton

Detectives are investigating after a woman’s body was found at an address in Wolverhampton on Sunday morning (5 May).

Officers were called to a house in Rakegate Close, Oxley, at around 9.15am and discovered a 21-year-old woman who was sadly pronounced dead at the scene.

A 23-year-old man was arrested in connection with her death and taken into police custody for questioning. He has since been released on police bail.

The death is currently being treated as unexplained. A post mortem examination was inconclusive. Further tests are due to be carried out. 

Detective Inspector Caroline Corfield, from the force’s homicide team, said: “We’re in the early stages of our enquiries but we are not currently looking for anyone else in connection with the death.

“Our thoughts are with the family and friends of the young woman and we’ll be doing all we can to support them at such a distressing time.”

A cordon is currently in place around the property while forensic enquiries continue. Anyone with information which can assist the investigation is asked to call 101.
