A woman found dead at a bedsit in Birmingham yesterday (Monday November 27) has been named as Julia Dale. 

Emergency services were called to the address in Kings Road, Erdington, just before 4am, but nothing could be done to save the 38-year-old.

Dale, who lived locally, was pronounced dead at the scene, police said.

At present her death is being treated as unexplained and enquiries are ongoing at the address to establish what happened after a post-mortem examination yesterday proved inconclusive.

Dale was found with facial injuries, but it was established that these did not contribute to her death.

A 51-year-old man arrested on suspicion of murder has been released from custody.  

Julia’s family has been informed and are being supported by specialist officers from the West Midlands Police Family Liaison Unit while the circumstances of her death are investigated.
