The autopsy of the body failed to reveal key facts

AN INITIAL post mortem examination of the body found at Hinxton has failed to establish the cause of death.

The autopsy was completed by Home Office pathologist Dr Nat Carey last night, but its findings have revealed neither the identity of the woman nor how she was killed.

More information is expected to be made available later this morning.

A 200-metre section of the A1301 is still closed off to traffic, with access from the Saffron Walden end completely blocked. Drivers coming from the Sawston roundabout are able to access Hinxton. Police have said the road is unlikely to fully open until later today at the earliest.

The Cambridgeshire Police investigation is being led by Det Supt Mark Birch, who said: "I'd appeal to anyone who has any information regarding the disappearance of a friend or relative. We are liaising with other forces to review any outstanding missing people.

"I would also like to hear from anyone who was in the Hinxton area late on Tuesday night or early on Wednesday morning.
