Information sent on behalf of Thames Valley Police

Thames Valley Police has launched a murder investigation following the death of a man and woman in Oxford overnight.

Officers were called to Foresters Tower in Wood Farm Road, Headington, at 9.18pm last night to reports that a man had fallen from an upper floor of Foresters Tower.

A scene-watch has been put in place at Foresters Tower while investigations continue. Police will remain at the scene for some time.

The man, who is believed to be in his mid-30s, died at the scene.

Following a search of flats at Foresters Tower, a woman was located on the fourth floor with severe neck injuries.

Sadly, the woman in her early-40s, was pronounced dead at the scene.

Senior investigating officer Detective Chief Inspector Stuart Bosley of Thames Valley Police’s Major Crime Unit, said: “Following an incident last night, a man and a woman were found dead at Forester Tower in suspicious circumstances.

“Although we are in the early stages of this investigation, we believe that the two people who have died are known to each other.

“I appreciate the concern that this will cause in the local community, but I would like to re-assure the public that we believe there is no wider threat and that we are not looking for anybody else in connection with this incident.

 “A second scene-watch is in place at Bonar Road in Headington.

“The woman’s next of kin have been informed and are being supported by specially trained officers at this time.

“We have not yet been able to inform the man’s next of kin.

 “If anybody has any concerns, or information relating to this incident, please don’t hesitate to speak to one of our officers at the scene or call 101, quoting URN 1469 (24/9).”
