A 54-year-old guy was questioned on suspicion of murder after a beautician mother was found dead in a rural community. Tributes have been paid to him.
Clair Armstrong, 50, was the woman’s local name after the incident at Messingham, North Lincolnshire.
Police were called to her residence early on Sunday morning after hearing indications of a possible safety issue.
Around 12.40 a.m., Humberside Police responded to a residence in Elm Way.
On suspicion of murder, a 54-year-old male was detained and is still in detention.
The family of Clair has been told of her passing and is receiving support from specialised officials, according to the police, who have opened a murder investigation.
According to GrimsbyLive, a murder investigation has begun.
The mother, who also owned Oliver’s beauty parlour, was well-liked in the North Lincolnshire community.
A woman claiming to be Clair’s cousin said in a social media tribute: “Rest in peace beautiful my heart is broken, can’t believe my beautiful cousin has gone, what a cruel world.”
While a neighbour who knew her said: “Clair was friendly and always spoke to me when we were out walking the dogs.
When questioned about Clair, who was also a skilled skydiver and frequently participated in jumps at the nearby facility in Hibaldstow, many who knew her simply broke down in tears.
A second business owner in Messingham added: “Since I’ve only ever seen this kind of thing in the news, I simply cannot believe it. Everything about it is shocking.”
Police revealed that while the facts surrounding the murder are investigated, a scene guard would be stationed at the location for a period of days.
“We recognise that a sad occurrence of this sort may cause shock to the local community, but I would like to reassure people that this is an isolated incident between persons known to the public,” Detective Chief Inspector Simon Vickers said in a statement.
“I just can’t believe this has happened right on our doorstep. You see it on the television, but I’m very surprised to see it outside my house.”
“Those living in the area can expect to see a number of officers over the coming days whilst a scene guard remains in place, and we continue with our investigation.
“I would encourage anyone with information, or anyone with concerns, to please come and speak to us.
“Alternatively, please call our non-emergency number 101 quoting log 25 of today, Sunday 6 November.
