Woman found dead at a property in Leighton Buzzard

Bedfordshire Police has confirmed a woman was found dead at a property in Waterdell, Leighton Buzzard last month.

An LBO reader initially contacted the paper after she saw two police cars and an ambulance near the shops in Waterdell on Wednesday, August 23.

At the time Bedfordshire Police would only confirm that they were at the scene because of concerns for a woman’s welfare.

But, as next of kin have been informed, they have now confirmed that the woman died. A spokesman for the force said: “We were called at approximately 11.30am on 23 August to reports of concern for a woman’s welfare at a property in Waterdell, Leighton Buzzard.

“Emergency services attended but sadly the woman was pronounced dead.

“The death is not being treated as suspicious and a file has been passed to the coroner.”
