Murder inquiry into death of 60-year-old woman in Wales

Detectives investigating the death of a 60-year-old woman in Monmouth have released a photo of her vital sign

Detectives investigating the death of a 60-year-old woman in south Wales have released a photo of her vital sign.

Lisa Mitchell, who lived alone in Monmouth, died following a serious head injury. Police were called to a road in the town on Sunday morning, but Mitchell died a short time later in hospital.

Anyone with information about the woman’s death was asked to contact Monmouthshire police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

In an official statement on the force’s Facebook page, Detective Chief Inspector Wayne Durdall said: “This is a tragic incident and we have several avenues to follow up.

“However, we are appealing for anyone who may have seen Lisa or who noticed anyone acting suspiciously in the direction of the station bridge, or St. John’s Hill, between the hours of 1am and 3am on Sunday, 25 June to contact us on 101.”

Durdall added: “We will also be carrying out extensive door-to-door enquiries and will be looking at CCTV footage of the area in the coming days. As part of this investigation, we are releasing a picture of Lisa’s vital sign today.

“This data is invaluable, as it tells us what Lisa’s vital signs were in the two hours prior to her death. In addition, a number of other people have come forward to give statements since our appeal yesterday.”

Mitchell was the third woman to die in Wales within days. A 64-year-old woman from Abergavenny died on Tuesday and on Thursday a 60-year-old was found dead at an address in Cardiff.
