A woman found dead at a bedsit in Erdington on Monday (27/11) has been named as Julia Dale.

Emergency services were called to the address in Kings Road, just before 4AM, but nothing could be done to save Julia, aged 38, and she was pronounced dead at the scene.

At present her death is being treated as unexplained and enquiries are on-going at the address to establish what happened after a post mortem examination yesterday proved inconclusive, although it was established that her facial injuries did not contribute to her death.


A man, aged 51, who was arrested on suspicion of murder has been released from custody.

Julia’s family has been informed and are being supported by specialist officers from the West Midlands Police Family Liaison Unit while the circumstances of her death are investigated.
