Investigators are questioning a woman who was arrested on suspicion of murder following reports of concern for the welfare of two people.
The 35-year-old remains in custody after officers attended a speech in Great Baddow, Essex, just after midday on Friday.
Essex Police’s investigation is still in its early stages and they remain at the scene on Pump Hill this evening.
Detective Superintendent Rob Kirby, of the Essex and Kent Serious Crime Directorate, said: “Our investigations are ongoing and it would be wrong to speculate while we work to establish a clear picture.”
“However, at this stage I can stress that we know this is a very isolated matter and there is no major risk or threat to the public in Chelmsford.”
Police encourage anyone with information to contact us. This can be done through Essex Police dedicated public portal.
