The body of a woman found in Leechpool and Owlbeech Woods last week has been confirmed as that of Jennifer Marsh by Sussex Police today (Monday June 18).

The 59-year-old from Horsham was discovered by a dog walker in dense undergrowth at 6.20pm on Wednesday June 13.

Jennifer was missing from her Littlehaven Lane home for more than two weeks.

“A postmortem is taking place on Monday June 18 but although further tests may be necessary in order to establish the exact cause of death, the death is still not being treated as suspicious.”
