"Another Latvian 'Liga Verse' Dies In The Channel Islands"

Woman found dead in St Peter Port named

The woman who was found dead in a flat in the Bordage in Guernsey at the weekend has been named.

24 year old Liga Verse was Latvian and had lived in the island for a number of years.

Today forensic officers have continued to scour the area for clues to the unexplained death.

A 27 year old man was arrested at the weekend, but is yet to be charged.

A Home Office pathologist has travelled to Guernsey to carry out a post-mortem on the body.

Her death is being treated as suspicious.

Police say her body was found at 8.30pm on Saturday in a flat at the Bordage, and they are appealing for information from the public.

They want to hear from anyone who may have seen anything suspicious in that area between Thursday morning and Saturday evening.

It is believed the victim may have eaten out at a local restaurant on Thursday evening. Guernsey Police are keen to establish where.

Second post-mortem to be carried out

A second post mortem will be carried out on the body of 24-year-old Liga Verse (pictured) as Guernsey Police continue the investigation into her death.
In a press conference this afternoon DI Phil Breban said it was still unclear how the Latvian died.
A 27-year-old man is still being held in custody in relation to the suspicious death, after the court granted the police a second extension to keep questioning him.
A team of officers are working on the case which police describe as a ‘suspicious and, as of yet, unexplained death’.
