Detectives investigating the murder of an Eastbourne woman have made a fresh appeal for witnesses four weeks after she was attacked.

Emma Crowhurst, 36, of Albion Road, was found on 26 April in Chawbrook Road in the East Sussex town.

A murder investigation was launched after she died in hospital two weeks later from a head injury.

Police are attempting to trace her last movements and want to speak to anyone who may have come to her aid.

Det Ch Insp Mike Ashcroft said: "I'm appealing to anyone that has any information, however small they may think it is, to get in contact with us."


Ms Crowhurst was last seen in the town at 19:00 BST in Seaside at the junction with Firle Road, by Buskers bar, he said.

Police believe she may have been in the Sainsbury's Local in Seaside at the junction with Belmore Road at some stage that evening.

Detectives think she got home some time after 23:00 and then went out to fetch her cats, "which was her normal routine".

It was while she was in the process of doing this that an argument between a man and a woman was heard. Police believe this may have led up to the assault.

Ms Crowhurst was found on the pavement in Chawbrook Road, at the junction with Dudley Road and Havelock Road just before midnight.
