Written by on 22nd November 2021

South Wales Police have launched a murder investigation following the discovery of a woman’s body in Llantwit Fadre on Sunday November 21, 2021.
It was made at a house on St Anne’s Drive at approximately 2.45pm. At this stage officers are unable to release the identity of the deceased.
An incident room has been set up at Cardiff Central Police Station and detectives investigating the murder want to hear from anybody in the village who may have heard or seen anything suspicious between 00:01hrs on Friday 19 November to 14.40hrs on Sunday 21 November.
A large police cordon remains in place in the area while crime scene investigators and specialist search officers work at the scene.
To date nobody has been arrested as part of the investigation.
Senior Investigating Officer Detective Superintendent Darren George, said:
This incident has understandably caused significant concern locally and I would like to reassure the community that we have a large team of officers who are working hard to identify who was responsible for this murder.
“We have officers at the scene and officers carrying out door to door enquiries across the village. An incident room has also been set up at Cardiff Central Police Station.
“My appeal is for anybody who thinks they may have information, no matter how insignificant it may seem, to contact us – what they tell us could be extremely valuable to the investigation.
“I would also like to remind people about the upset that rumour and speculation can cause and am asking people to refrain from fuelling this online and to wait for police updates which will be released as and when appropriate throughout the investigation.”
“Finally I would like to thank the local community for their support to date and reassure them that a large police presence will remain in the area.”
