A couple's apparent woodland romp may be the reason behind a police response to reports a woman had been seen hanging in Woosehill, Berkshire. Officers were called to woodland behind Morrisons supermarket by a concerned walker last Thursday who claimed she saw a woman tied up and in distress.
The caller said they had seen a woman hanging in the woods, however not long after the caller made their report the supposed victim, along with a man spotted close by, had scarpered from the scene. Around 10 police officers arrived on the scene moments later and conducted a search of the woodland behind Morrisons, as well as enquiries with local shoppers and walkers, to make sure no-one was injured.
An onlooker, who asked not to be named, said: “When I arrived at Morrisons a woman told me police were in the woods and that a woman had been found tied up and murdered. It turned out she had been tied up by her male friend as some kind of kinky game. They ran away before the police arrived. Everyone at the supermarket was talking about it.”
A spokesman for Thames Valley Police said: “Thames Valley Police received a call at 10.51am after a member of the public raised concerns over the welfare of a woman they had seen in woodland behind the Morrisons store in Woosehill Court. Officers were given a description of the woman and a man, who was also seen in the vicinity, but despite a search of the woodland and the surrounding area the two people could not be found. At this stage there is no evidence that a crime has been committed so there will be no further police action.”
