A 43-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of murder following the death of Worcester woman Julie Fox.

Ms Fox, who had cerebral palsy, was found dead in the hallway of her bungalow in Carnforth Drive, Worcester, after suffering a significant head injury caused by a blunt instrument.

The 51-year-old's body was found at 6.50pm on Wednesday, December 27 after it is believed she was attacked in her home.

The last known person to have seen her alive was a carer at 6.45pm on Friday, December 22.

The police investigation is ongoing and detectives are continuing to appeal for information.

Detective Superintendent Adrian McGee said: "We're still keen to speak to anyone who knew Julie or saw her in the last couple of weeks.

"We're especially keen to locate Julie's pink handbag (pictured). 

"She had this with her days before she died and it is missing from her bungalow."
