Police On Manhunt After Body Is Discovered At Nature Preserve

Further information has been released by authorities about the homicide investigation following the discovery of a corpse on the shore of Lincolnshire in England.

The body found at Gibraltar Point in Skegness on Friday, January 19, was identified as 23-year-old Petra Ross, according to a spokeswoman from Lincolnshire Police.

Two vehicles were seen pulling into the Princes Parade parking lot on Wednesday, January 17, between 11:21 and 11:27 p.m., according to an update sent by the force on Monday, January 22. Officers are attempting to interview the people inside. Anyone who could have seen people strolling around Gibraltar Point Nature Reserve or a white car around the given time was asked to provide their information.

Following the discovery of the woman’s body, a 45-year-old man was apprehended on suspicion of murder. Further information on the man’s release on bond while investigations continue was revealed by the police on Tuesday, January 22.

A LincolnshireLive article states that from the suburbs of Skegness, all the way to the mouth of the Wash, Gibraltar Point is an unspoiled stretch of coastline. A lovely natural reserve, the region is well-connected by walking, biking, and jogging trails. This is where the body was found.

The investigation’s head, Detective Chief Inspector Jen Lovatt of the Major Crime Unit, has thanked the community for its continued patience and understanding. Anyone with knowledge that might help their continuing investigations is asked to come forward as a witness. If anyone happens to have any pertinent information, they ask that they please not hesitate to reach out.
