Detectives investigating the discovery of the body of a woman in Darwen are not treating her death as suspicious.
We were called at shortly after 8:40am yesterday (Wednesday, March 6th) after a member of the public saw the woman’s body in water close to Union Street, Darwen.
The woman was recovered from the water and a post mortem examination to establish the cause of her death took place yesterday evening. Unfortunately, a specific cause of death could not be found and so further tests will take place. We do not believe her death was suspicious.
For now our priority is identifying who the woman is and tracing her family.
Thanks to everyone who shared their support on social media yesterday.
