Posted on 11th August 2017

Last week the body of a woman was found on the A38, in the southbound carriageway near to Ripley.

Officers investigating the incident that happened on Thursday, August 3, now believe that the 24-year-old woman, that was found deceased on the dual carriageway, may have committed suicide.

Sergeant Scott Riley from the Collision Investigation Unit said: “We appealed to the public last week to contact us with information and to provide any dashcam footage that they may have.

“I would like to thank the public for their response to this as many people contacted us with useful information and dashcam footage that has assisted us in our investigation.”
