Shocked neighbors described a woman found dead in her home as “calm” and kind while police investigate her murder.

Officers were called to an address in Thoresby Avenue, King’s Lynn, Tuesday morning.

The body of a woman in her 40s was found in a semi-detached house near the Oak Circle stores just after 8:30 p.m.

A man in his 50s was arrested on the spot on suspicion of murder and taken to hospital for medical treatment. He will in due course be questioned by detectives investigating the death.

The dead woman is not yet named. Norfolk police said initial investigations indicated that both parties were known to each other, and officers believe this is an isolated incident.

A woman living near the house where the woman was found said the property had been in focus for intense police activity all Tuesday.

“There were three forensic vans, there were police cars, there were detectives,” she said. “They have gone door to door and asked about the last movements of the man and the woman.

“I’ve seen them come out of the house with bags and something resembling cell phones.”

The woman added that the couple living at the address were comfortable but kept to themselves.

Another neighbor said the man and woman came from Lithuania and Latvia. He added: “We have lived here for four years and they were here before.

“The man, the man, he was very calm, she was a very calm person. They were okay, they would always say hello.”

Others living on the street at Gaywood Parkway said the first thing they knew about the woman’s death was when they saw postings on social media.

A lone police car has been left to guard the property to preserve the crime scene.

Norfolk police said a post-mortem would be held at the Home Office in time to determine the cause of death.
