Police continue to question woman arrested following suspicious death in Stratford
A number of police officers were at the scene on Thursday accompanied by forensics experts.
Jonathan Grixti, who lives in the house opposite, said: “I went out at about 9pm last night and that is when I saw the police car. We were a bit worried when we saw that and later on there was a forensics van so we knew whatever had happened wasn’t good.
“Afterwards a policeman came around to ask us if we’d seen anything. When he came around I asked him what was going on, but he said he couldn’t give us any information.
“There has been a police car out there all night and we were told that there would be a few police coming and going over the next few days.”
A fellow neighbour added: "I’m not that shocked really, I’ve lived here since 1997 for my sins, and there’s been a few incidents here, but we’ve never had anything like this. I didn’t see anything, I did hear noises and a dog barking last night but I just went back to sleep. There are always quite a few people coming and going from the houses around here.”
The deceased has not been formerly identified but next of kin have been informed.
