A man has been arrested on suspicion of murder after a body is found in a Devonport home.
The 24 year old local woman was discovered at Vaagso Close in the early hours of this morning.
Police are doing house to house inquiries and have upped patrols to re-assure people.
Detective Chief Inspector Dave Thorne, who is leading the investigation, said: "This is the very early stages of a murder investigation. My officers will carry out a careful and thorough investigation. Obviously I'm unable to share further details with you at this time but I am hopeful that we will bring whoever did this to justice."
Detectives would like to hear from anyone who saw or heard anything last night (4 April) or into the early hours of Thursday 5 April that could help with the investigation, by calling 101 and quoting 190 of 5 April 2012.
