RELATIVES of a woman found dead on the A12 were today bracing themselves for the results of formal identification.
Family liaison officers have been in constant contact with family members since the dismembered body was discovered on the A12 carriageway at Capel St Mary at 9.45pm on Tuesday.
Although formal identification has yet to take place, police are almost certain as to who the woman is.
A post-mortem examination carried out yesterday revealed she died of multiple injuries.
However, it remains unclear if those injuries were sustained at the scene or if she had already been hurt.
As such, police are continuing to treat the death as “unexplained”, although consideration is being given to the possibility the woman took her own life.

She is believed to be in her 50s and from Essex, although police are remaining tight-lipped on exactly where in the county she lived until they are sure of her identity.
A blue Peugeot 406, which belonged to the woman, was discovered at a nearby lay-by and was taken away for forensic examination.
Scenes of crime officers spent much of yesterday at the lay-by, scouring the area for clues. A spokeswoman for Suffolk police thanked members of the public who had already come forward with information but urged more to contact the force.
“We would continue that appeal for anyone driving along the A12 at the time to contact us”, she added.
Anyone with information is being asked to call 01473 613500.
