We were called to Norway Crescent in Harwich at around 8:45pm on Monday night (20 February) following a call from the ambulance service about a woman in cardiac arrest.
The woman in her late 30s was taken to hospital. We can confirm that yesterday (23 February), she has sadly died.
An investigation to establish the circumstances that lead to her unexpected death remains ongoing.
Detective Inspector Kev Hughes from Kent and Essex Serious Crime Directorate said “I would like to extend my condolences to this woman’s family and friends at this difficult time.
“We continue to investigate what has happened, we are carrying out enquiries with local residents and medical professionals in order to provide answers to her family.
“A man has been arrested in connection with this and currently remains on bail. Until the facts surrounding this death are established, we continue to ask the public not to speculate.”
