Wiltshire Police have issued a statement in relation to the murder investigation into the death of Alison Connolly, of Penhill Drive, Swindon.
“Wiltshire Police made a mandatory referral to the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) in relation to this incident, because the Force had been in contact with the victim prior to her death.
“The IPCC have now confirmed this will be an independent investigation, therefore any further enquiries in relation to this should be referred to them.”
