    I read about this case a while ago because they were appealing for witnesses, the first I'd heard of it but its stuck with me because of how horrific it was and how local it happened.

    Welcome back Its good to have people who know the area, from what you've said, it can be quiet in the early hours. It must have been so scary for her, if she was still alive when she was put there.

    Shocking isn’t it. There’s very little information about it at all; I wonder if there are reporting restrictions for some reason.

    I always wonder why some cases make the national news with wide coverage and others do not. They can’t all be reporting restrictions, especially when the info is in the local news.

    "Detectives have identified the woman who was found in Perton in the early hours of Monday morning (August 9).

    Jomaa Jerrare, aged 52, of Heath Town, Wolverhampton, was found by officers just before 3am in a lay-by in Bridgnorth Road.

    A post mortem has taken place but the cause of her death is under further investigation.

    Specially-trained officers are working with and supporting Jomaa’s family who have requested their privacy is respected.

    A 41-year-old man from Wolverhampton who was arrested on suspicion of murder has been released without further action. Enquiries are ongoing, but we are again appealing for assistance from the public.

    Detective Superintendent Tom Chisholm, of Staffordshire Police, said: "We’ve had a tremendous response from the public but, again, I must stress, this is the early stages of a major investigation and we are pursuing many lines of enquiry.

    "‘We need to understand Jomaa’s movements prior to her death and want to hear from anyone who knew her or has seen her over the last few months. We are keen to understand where she has been frequenting and who she has been associating with.

    "We believe that she was driven to the lay-by in Bridgnorth Road. Did you witness anything suspicious or see any vehicles in the area between 1am and 3am on Monday morning? Do have local dash cam or CCTV footage?"

    "It maybe you know someone was out at that time or their pattern of behaviour changed. Please get in touch with us if you can help or have information."

    He added: "This is a shocking and dreadful incident and our team of detectives is working tirelessly to establish what has happened and bring those responsible to justice."

    Anyone with any information is asked to contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111 or visit https://mipp.police.uk/operation/STAFFS21H10-PO1 "

    Are we allowed to link the victims Facebook profile?

    The area the lady lived is definitely not such an affluent area as where she was found

    Well, I didn’t expect that!

    I wonder if possibly they are thinking it was suicide?
    MOO

    I've checked around victim's accounts and I think it's OK please tell me if not

    It appears she was single the last time she used Facebook

    "Late teens-30"? Well, that estimate was far off. Rest in peace Jomaa!

    So lady had been identified. Doesn't suprise me that they thought she was younger. Her Fbs are quite old profiles but she looks tiny in them.

    Heath Town is most definitely not an affluent area of Wolverhampton. There's a lot of tower blocks, a lot of migrants and a well known gang issue in the area. It's a good 5/6miles from where she was found too.

    It's interesting that police are wanting more information on her whereabouts and who she has spoken to in the past couple of months. I know it's generally the norm but implies to me that they don't have an immediate suspect and maybe she didn't have a normal kind of routine in terms of works, friends etc

    Lots of rumours flying around which I can't talk about here but wouldn't suprise me if it was an unplanned attack on her

    I'm glad they have identified her, now hopefully she can be laid to rest and RIP. It's puzzling that they thought she was so much younger than her actual age though. Could she have been a rough sleeper, malnourished or I hate to say an addict ? I only ask because for them to think she was so young, I can only think it was maybe because she was of small stature anyway but also malnourished. If they or her family didn't know her whereabouts or activities for the last few months either, it would suggest to me a person who was homeless maybe.. just speculation on my part. RIP Jomaa.

    How very sad. She looks very small and vulnerable in the photos.
    Some locals are moaning about the road being closed, because there are a lot of other roadworks causing chaos in the area. The road will be closed for as long as it takes to find out who has done this.

    So the man that was arrested, I'm presuming had nothing to do with Jomaa's murder. The question is then who did ?and let's hope they catch him or her soon.
