Cops were called to the property near New Cheveley Road around 10.10pm.

Paramedics raced to the scene, but she was pronounced dead a short while later.

A postmortem found Mrs Price suffered “injuries consistent with a fall from a height” and the circumstanced of her fall “remain under investigation”, Suffolk Police said.

The force arrested two men from Newmarket, aged 57 and 50, on suspicion of murder.


The 50-year-old man was released on bail and is due to return to police on September 1.

An application was made for a warrant of further detention at Ipswich Magistrates’ Court on Monday and detectives were given another 30 hours to question the 57-year-old man.

He was released on bail and is due to return to police on August 31.

Mrs Price had worked in horse racing for many years, most recently for Hugo Palmer’s local stables until 2019.

Friends paid tribute to her on Facebook, with one saying she was “forever in our hearts”.

Another added: “Rest in peace my dear friend sleep well.”

Police have appealed for witnesses to contact them.

Officers are keen to hear from anybody who saw Ms Price between 6am on Friday, August 6 and 10pm on Saturday, August 7.

Any residents in the local area with a doorbell camera or private CCTV are also asked to review their footage, as well as anyone with motion activated dash-cam footage.
