A woman whose body was found at a National Trust estate has been identified as 62-year-old Carole Wright.

Thames Valley Police found her body in woodland at the Watlington Hill estate in Oxfordshire just before 6pm last Friday.

A 23-year-old man, who was earlier arrested on suspicion of murder and who police said was known to the victim, remains in hospital in a serious but stable condition.

A post-mortem examination was carried out on Monday, but further forensic tests are needed to confirm the cause of death.

Detective Inspector Mike Roddy said: "Our condolences, thoughts and support is with the family of Carole Wright at this unimaginably traumatic time.

"The force's thorough investigation continues and searches in Watlington Hill National Trust park are ongoing.

"I would like to thank the local community for their support and co-operation while our officers and staff have been in the area carrying out vital police work to establish the circumstances of what happened to Carole."
