Murder probe launched after woman found dead the morning after visiting Wigan pub as cops arrest man | The Sun

A MURDER probe has been launched after a woman was found dead at a Wigan home.

Greater Manchester Police believe the woman had left the Dog and Partridge pub on Sunday – walking home about 11pm on Sunday.

But tragically, her body was found at her home in Wigan.

A 56-year-old man has since been arrested on suspicion of murder.

Detective Chief Inspector Mark Davis, of GMPโ€™s Major Investigation Team (MIT), said: โ€œThis is a terribly sad murder of a woman in her own home and even though a male has been arrested, this investigation is still in itโ€™s early stages. This investigation is led by a dedicated MIT team of detectives.

"Numerous scenes remain in place as officers investigate the circumstances behind this tragic incident.

"I wish to appeal for witnesses around Douglas House – particularly from 11pm on Sunday, October 29, up to 8pm on Monday, October 30, and also in the Dog and Partridge pub, Wallgate, Wigan, particularly during the evening of Sunday, October 29, and all day on Monday, October 30.

โ€œI would like to appeal to anyone with any information no matter how small to come forward – using Crimestoppers anonymously on 101, quoting the log number 3441-201023 or MIT on 016185 66377.โ€
