GMP detectives make arrest following death of woman in Bolton

Greater Manchester Police has launched an investigation following the death of a woman at an address in Bolton at the weekend.

At around 11.20am on Sunday, 3 September 2023, officers attended a property in Bushell Street, after receiving a request for assistance by colleagues in the North West Ambulance Service.

The initial call came in for the concern for the welfare of a woman, but despite the best efforts of emergency services, a 37-year-old woman sadly died.

A 41-year-old man was subsequently arrested on suspicion of murder. He remains in custody for questioning while enquiries are ongoing.

Detective Inspector Janet Malone, from Greater Manchester Police’s Bolton district, said: “We are continuing to investigate all of the details of this incident and have moved quickly to look at all details and evidence available to us.

“We have a man in custody, but we are still working to fully establish the circumstances of what tragically led to the death of this woman. I appreciate that this will come as concerning news for those in the area, but I want to stress that we are not currently looking for anyone else in connection with this incident.

“In addition, your local officers will be more than happy to discuss any concerns you may have – if you have any queries, they can provide advice and reassurance on the matter.”

“I would ask anyone with any information that they believe could help with our investigation to please get in touch. You can do this by calling 0161 856 5757, quoting log number 1366 of 03/09/23.”

You can also report information at www.gmp.police.uk, or by contacting the independent charity, Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
