Police have said they are investigating the death of a woman at an address on Chester Road.

Ongoing police activity has been visible since yesterday morning at a house on Chester Road.

North Wales Police have said this morning, “We were called by the ambulance service at 6.37am on Sunday to a report of a woman’s body being found at an address in Chester Road, Wrexham.

“The death is currently being treated as unexplained and police enquiries are on-going.

“The coroner has been informed and a Home Office post mortem examination is due to take place on Monday June 10.

“There is no more information available at this time.”

On Sunday residents observed an emergency service response to the property on Chester Road with white suited scenes of crime officers attending the address yesterday morning. Officers were also ‘interviewing’ people locally, and one resident told us they believed a dog unit was also being used to assist the investigation.

Police officers were securing the cordon throughout Sunday into the evening, and it was still in place earlier today.
