Two pensioners, 73 & 72, arrested after woman in her 40s found dead in her home
TWO men aged in their 70s have been arrested on suspicion of murder after a woman was discovered dead at her home in Bolton.
Emergency crews were scrambled to Lostock just before 10pm last night where they found the woman, aged in her 40s, dead at the scene.
Two pensioners aged 72 and 73 were arrested on suspicion of murder and remain in custody.
A post mortem is due to be carried out later today to establish how the woman died.
Detective Superintendent Howard Millington, of GMP’s Serious Crime division, said: “Firstly, I would like to pay respect to the woman who has tragically lost her life. My thoughts are with her family and friends at what must be an unimaginably devastating time.
“Whilst we have made two arrests, it is important to stress that we are keeping an open mind about the circumstances of the woman’s death and will work tirelessly to keep her family updated of any developments.
“We have a dedicated team of officers who are working hard to piece together exactly what has happened in order to provide those closest to the woman, with much-deserved answers."
