Farm murder probe: 21-year-old man remains in police custody

Humberside Police are continuing to investigate the murder of 59-year-old Fiona Southwell at a Grange Farm, Goxhill Lane, Seaton on Friday 15 July

A 21-year-old man remains in police custody and is being questioned about the murder.

Specialist officers are supporting Fiona Southwell’s family.

Detective Chief Inspector Tony Cockerill who is leading the investigation said: “The major incident team is continuing the investigation into Fiona Southwell’s murder and detectives are continuing to piece together how she died.

“I am aware that this incident will be a shock to those living in the local area given its remote and rural location. It is important to re-iterate that murders are extremely rare and crime in general remains very low in area, so I would urge people not to be fearful.

“We are committed to identifying those responsible for Fiona’s death and anyone who hasn’t spoken to the police with anything pertinent to the investigation should call the force on 101.”

Detectives would still like to speak to anyone using the old railway track between Hull and Hornsea between 7am and 7pm on Friday 15 July who may have seen something suspicious or untoward.

Anyone with information should call 101 quoting log 517 of 15/07/6 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
