DETECTIVES investigating the suspected murder of a woman in Dines Green have asked for people's help in piecing together her last known movements.

Jacqueline Harrison, 48, was found dead at her flat in Gresham Road on Thursday, April 12 by police officers after worried neighbours and friends raised concerns she had not been seen for several days.

A post mortem later revealed she had suffered a significant assault.

A man in his 50s was arrested in Dorchester on Sunday (April 15) in connection with her death and has been transferred to custody at Worcester Police Station where he is currently being questioned by detectives.

But police have yet to trace anyone who can provide a confirmed sighting of Ms Harrison - who was better known as Jackie - more recently than the morning of March 17.

Detective Inspector Gerry Smith, from the Major Investigation Unit at West Mercia Police, said: "We are keen to speak to anyone who saw or spoke to Jackie in recent weeks, in particular in the last week of March or first week of April.

"It is vital we trace her last known movements and know who she was associating with in recent weeks. Jackie had a problem with alcohol dependency and as such had quite a chaotic lifestyle. She mixed with a lot of other people in Worcester who also drank heavily as well as the homeless."

"We will be speaking to as many of Jackie's friends and acquaintances as we can but we need to hear as soon as possible from anyone who has seen her recently. Where did you see her, what was she doing and who was she with?"

Anyone who saw or spoke to her in the last week of March or first week of April should ring the Operation Mallard incident room at Worcester Police Station by dialling the police non-emergency number 101.
