Arborfield death - man arrested on suspicion of murder
Published: 4 Jun 2013 15:00
The 39-year-old Nepalese national was reported missing in the early hours of Monday and was discovered by officers at around 1pm yesterday in woodland off Robin Hood Copse, following a search.
Formal identification is yet to be carried out, but senior investigating officer, Detective Chief Inspector Gill Wootton, said: "We are providing support to Krishnamaya's family at this extremely distressing time and are keeping them fully informed on the progress of our investigation.
"A Home Office forensic pathologist attended the scene yesterday and a post-mortem examination is due to be carried out today.
"We are now working to establish Krishnamaya's movements on Sunday evening, and I would like to appeal to anyone who was walking in fields or woodland between Castle Hill and Eversley Road in the afternoon or evening, to come forward if they have not already spoken to us.
A 30-year-old local man was arrested on suspicion of murder this morning and is still being quizzed by police.
Area commander, chief inspector Rob France, added: "There will be a heightened police presence in the Arborfield area over the coming days and extra reassurance patrols will be taking place for as long as necessary.
"Although incidents of this seriousness are rare, I recognise this will cause great anxiety within the community and I would encourage any residents who have concerns or questions to speak to the local neighbourhood policing team."
Officers are appealing for witnesses or anyone in the area at the time to come forward.
