Victim named as police investigate murder in Cheltenham

The woman who was found dead in Cheltenham yesterday has been named as 41-year-old Kelly Davis.

Gloucestershire Police have released the name after informing next of kin and the coroner.

They are also appealing for anyone who may have seen Ms Davis in the week prior to her death to get in touch.

Ms Davis (pictured) was found by paramedics at an address in Aldridge Close in the St Pauls area of the town at around 11.50am on Thursday.

Aldridge Close is a small cul-de-sac off Folly Lane between its junction with Swindon Lane and the Prince of Wales Stadium and Leisure @ Cheltenham.

A 58-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of murder shortly after the discover of the body and he remains in police custody.

Detective chief inspector Ruth Mather said that the investigation is ongoing.

"Our detectives are working hard to get answers for Kelly's family and we are asking anyone who may have sighted her in the week prior to her death to let us know by calling 101 and quoting incident 158 of 6 June.

"Alternatively, Crimestoppers can be called anonymously on 0800 555 111 or information can be submitted online."
