Jomaa Jerrare of Heath Town, Wolverhampton, has been identified as the probable murder victim by detectives.
She was 52 years old.
Burned In Perton Layby
Officers discovered her dead in a lay-by on Bridgnorth Road, Perton, South Staffordshire, just before 2.30 a.m. on Monday, after receiving reports of suspicious behavior. Although a post-mortem examination was performed, the cause of Ms. Jerrare’s death is still being investigated.
According to Staffordshire Police, a 41-year-old man from Wolverhampton who was arrested on suspicion of murder has been released without charges. As the inquiry proceeds, the police department is asking for the public’s assistance once more.
According to Independent.co.uk, Staffordshire Police Detective Superintendent Tom Chisholm said, “We’ve had a tremendous response from the public but, again, I must stress, this is the early stages of a major investigation and we are pursuing many lines of enquiry.”
“We need to understand Jomaa’s movements prior to her death and want to hear from anyone who knew her or has seen her over the last few months.”
“We are keen to understand where she has been frequenting and who she has been associating with. “We believe that she was driven to the lay-by in Bridgnorth Road. Did you witness anything suspicious or see any vehicles in the area between 1am and 3am on Monday morning? Do you have local dash cam or CCTV footage?”
“It may be you know someone was out at that time or their pattern of behaviour changed. Please get in touch with us if you can help or have information.
“This is a shocking and dreadful incident and our team of detectives is working tirelessly to establish what has happened and bring those responsible to justice.”
According to The-sun.com, A service spokesman said: “We were called to an incident at the junction of Jenny Walkers Lane and Bridgnorth Road at 2.49am on Monday.
“One ambulance, a paramedic officer and a MERIT trauma doctor attended the scene.
“On arrival we discovered one patient, who sadly could not be saved and they were confirmed dead at the scene.”
