Woman found in Staffordshire woodland named

Staffordshire Police say they believe a woman found in Tamworth is 20 year-old Keeley Bunker.

The force were alerted to the discovery of a woman’s body in woodland near to Roman Way, Tamworth, at 9pm on Thursday evening.

Her death is being treated as unexplained at this time and a Home Office post mortem report is due.

Staffordshire Police have asked that people refrain from speculating as to the circumstances of Keeley’s death to avoid causing further distress for her family who are being supported by specially-trained officers.

Investigations continue with officers having cordoned off a number of areas for forensic examination.

A 19-year-old man from Tamworth who was arrested on suspicion of murder on Thursday remains in custody.

Detectives say there will be an increased police presence in the area as their investigation continues.
