Newmarket update – Second man released under investigation and other man remains on bail

A man who was arrested in connection with the death of woman in Newmarket has been released under investigation, while another man remains on bail.

Officers were called just after 10.10pm on Saturday 7 August, to a property on New Cheveley Road in the town.

An ambulance attended the scene, but a woman, aged in her 40s, was sadly pronounced deceased a short time later.

Subject to confirmation at formal inquest proceedings, the deceased has been identified as Donna Price, aged 43, of New Cheveley Road, Newmarket.

Specialist trained officers are supporting Donna’s family through this extremely difficult time. A Home Office post-mortem examination was completed on Sunday 8 August. Mrs Price had sustained injuries consistent with a fall from a height. The circumstances surrounding this remain under investigation.

Shortly after the incident, police arrested two men from Newmarket, aged 57 and 50, on suspicion of murder. The 50-year-old man was released on bail and was initially due to return to police today, Wednesday 1 September. He has since been released under investigation pending further enquiries.

An application was made for a warrant of further detention at Ipswich Magistrates’ Court on Monday 9 August, where detectives were granted an additional 30 hours to question the 57-year-old man.

He was later released on bail and was initially due to return to police yesterday, Tuesday 31 August. The bail date has now been extended to 5 November 2021.

Early enquiries lead detectives to believe that this was an isolated incident and there is no wider threat to the local community.

Officers are continuing to appeal for witnesses, particularly anyone who was in the area of New Cheveley Road, Cricket Field Road and surrounding streets, who may have seen or heard anything suspicious, to make contact with them.

Any residents in the local area with a doorbell camera or private CCTV are also asked to review their footage, as well as anyone with motion activated dash-cam footage.
