Sussex Police have launched a murder inquiry after a woman’s body was found at a home in Lordswell Lane in Crowborough last night (Friday 27th).
A Sussex Police spokesman said:
Officers attended the property at 7.20pm in response to a request for a welfare check.
Upon speaking to a 22-year-old man at the address a search of the property was made and a deceased woman, who was a relative of the man, was found inside.
The man was arrested on suspicion of murder. He is currently in custody and the investigation is ongoing.
Police are not seeking anyone else in relation to this at this time.
Anyone with information which could help with the inquiry is asked to contact Sussex Police or by calling 101, quoting Operation Stonegate.
