Formal identification has not yet taken place.

Detective Inspector Ruby Burrow, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “We are re-appealing for anyone who was in the Abbotsford Drive area between 11pm on Tuesday and 2.20am yesterday and who may have information which could assist us with our enquiries to call us.

“We are also appealing for anyone who may have been with the woman anytime on Tuesday night to come forward. It is possible that she spent some time in a house in the local area before going out on the street at around 11pm.

“We have checked CCTV footage and we know that, before she died, the woman was talking to someone wearing a parka jacket for quite some time at the location where her body was found.

“If you are that person then we’d urge you to please come forward and get in touch with us.

“We also know that a dark-coloured taxi drove past the woman on Abbotsford Drive at around 1.12am yesterday.

“We are appealing for the taxi driver to come forward as they may have information or dashcam footage which can help us to piece together the events leading up to the woman’s death.”

If you have any information please call Nottinghamshire Police on 101, quoting incident number 36 of 12 February 2020.
