Sarah Henshaw murder enquiry: Body of woman found near Chesterfield
Main article content
Just after 12am on Monday 26 June officers attended a layby off the westbound carriageway of the A617, close to junction 29 of the M1, where a body believed to be Sarah was discovered.
Her family have been made aware, are being supported by specialist officers, and our thoughts are with them at this time.
The discovery comes after a murder investigation was launched following a report on Friday 23 June that Sarah had not been seen since 9pm on Tuesday 20 June at her home in Norman Street, Ilkeston.
A man who was arrested on suspicion of the 31-year-old’s murder remains in police custody and a warrant of further detention has been authorised giving officers more time to question him.
Officers remain keen to speak to anyone who may have CCTV or dashcam footage of a blue Ford Transit van, registration beginning YP16, in the early hours of Wednesday 21 June around the area of J29 of the M1 and the A617 towards Chesterfield.
