Woman whose body found in layby pictured as family pay tribute

A woman whose body was found in a layby near Guildford in Surrey in a suspected murder has been pictured.

Surrey Police has identified the woman as Helen Anderson and released a tribute from her family who say they have lost their "dear sister and daughter".

The 41-year-old, from Finsbury Park in London, is survived by four children, SurreyLive reports.

Her body was found in undergrowth by the A3 Guildford slip road off Woking Road on Monday (August 23) by a member of the public.

Following the discovery, at around 3pm, police cordoned off the area and a crime scene was set up.

Paying tribute, Helen's family said: "Our dear sister and daughter has gone. We loved you. In this life you faced many challenges and still you had a big heart. Goodbye dear Helen."

Helen's family are being supported by specially trained officers and her four children are being supported by family.

A 52-year-old man of no fixed address was arrested on Tuesday (August 24), with Surrey Police confirming on Friday (August 27) that it was on suspicion of murder.

Police said a 51-year-old man from Hackney was also arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to commit murder. They remain in custody.

Senior Investigating Officer, Detective Chief Inspector Emma Vickers, said: "Our thoughts and deepest sympathies are with Helen's family and friends at this incredibly difficult time.

"We are doing everything possible to ensure those responsible for Helen's death are held to account and we are making significant progress with our enquiries.
