Police have named the 66-year-old woman who was found dead in a residential address in Bexley on Tuesday as Suzanne Winnister, and a 68-year-old man has arrested on suspicion of murder.

A murder investigation was launched after police discovered Suzanne collapsed inside a home in Becketts Close at around 9:15pm and pronounced her dead at the scene.

Met Police said the death was being treated as suspicious, and a special post-mortem examination held on Wednesday, September 9, gave the cause of death as severe head and neck injuries.

The victim has now been named as 66-year-old Suzanne Winnister, pictured above, and her next of kin has been informed.

Two men have been arrested as part of the murder investigation, and Becketts Close was sealed off today as police continued their investigation.

A 68-year-old man, who is believed to have been known to the victim, has been arrested on suspicion of murder, and remains in custody in a south London police station.

A second man, aged 64, was also arrested in connection with the investigation, but has now been released under investigation.

Detective Chief Inspector Mick Norman, said: “We are at the very early stages of our investigation, we have arrested two men and our enquiries continue.

“Our thoughts remain with the deceased’s family at this sad time. I urge anyone who has information, but has not yet come forward, to get in touch without delay.”

Tony Kench, the previous owner of the house where the woman was found, sold the property to a couple six years ago.

He said: "She was a lovely lady. This has shocked me, it's the last thing I thought would happen."

Becketts Close is a small, secluded street with three houses in leafy Bexley Village.

Nearby Wansunt Road was the site of a mansion, since demolished, where James Bond star Roger Moore lived with singer Dorothy Squires in the 1950s.
