Saturday 11 August 2012
A woman whose charred remains were discovered in a supermarket car park has been named by police.
Karen Archard, from Westcroft, Chippenham, was found at about 3am in the grounds of the town's Sainsbury's on Tuesday. Her body was discovered after the fire service put out a fire at the site, in Bath Road.
Her next of kin have been informed. It was announced earlier this week that police are not treating her death as suspicious.
Officers say they are continuing to establish the full circumstances of the incident.
Detective Inspector Matt Davey said: "We would like to thank all of the people who have come forward and to the community of Chippenham who have been supportive of this investigation.
"We are still seeking information from anyone who can help us put together Karen's last movements and we would ask you to get in touch with us if you think you can help."
