Police send letter to residents in Albion Road and surrounds

Gina Lycett of West Midlands Police has asked me to republish a letter the force has sent to residents in the Albion Road/Hussey Estate area this afternoon. Following a rather speculative report in the Daily Mail, many residents seem to be under the impression that the murder of Mrs. Myring was related to a failed burglary. West Midlands Police do not believe this is the case, and are keen to point out that burglary levels are very low in the Brownhills area and that Brownhills is one of the safest parts of Walsall in which to live.

A further update from your local policing team – Albion Road, Brownhills

Thursday 2 June 2011

We thought it was important to give you a further update on the current investigations and to quash any speculation and rumours that we believe have been circulated in the area.

We would like to reassure all residents that we do not believe at this stage that the death of Daisy Myring was as a result of her house being burgled.

Detectives have informed us that their strong line of inquiry is that whoever entered the house on Albion Road had access to the property or knew someone who had.

We have arrested a man and a woman from Cannock in connection with the incident and they are still currently helping us with our enquiries.

We will continue to keep you updated, but we ask for your continued support as investigations are still ongoing and it is crucial to the inquiry that certain details of the investigation are not released at this time.

We want to reassure you that the area in which you live is one of the safest places in Walsall and that incidents of this nature are extremely rare.

If you have access to the internet, you can see how many crimes have been committed in your area by visiting Police.UK. Only one crime and that was to a vehicle, was reported in the vicinity last month.

A strong police presence will remain in your area for some time and we urge you to speak to one of our officers if you have any concerns.

This tragic incident is an isolated one and our thoughts are with family and friends at this time.

If you have any information that may help our enquiries then please contact us on 0345 113 5000 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

    I have to say….that letter, or initiative from the police has impressed me really when one considers the general lack of police presence in the last years, due to funding ect. Great stuff….Im saddened by the ‘story’ and ofcourse feel for those involved, but a great job by the police. I wish I could thank them personally for ‘being there’ for people when they are needed, without them having to be asked to be there.
