A magistrates’ extension was granted to detectives from Staffordshire Police this morning (Sept 21) at North Staffordshire Justice Centre in Newcastle-under-Lyme.
A 19-year-old man was arrested on September 19 after a woman’s body was discovered in woodland in Roman Way, Tamworth.
Although the woman has not been formally identified, she is believed to be Keeley Bunker, 20, of Tamworth, who was reported missing earlier in the evening of September 19.
