'Beautiful Woman In Chains' In Mystery Death
A female 'carer' found dead at her home has been described as a "beautiful woman in chains" as police launched a murder inquiry.
The woman, named locally as 41-year-old mother-of-three Alison Taylor, had looked after her wheelchair-bound husband, according to neighbours.
Police discovered her body at a three-bedroom semi-detached house in Mulberry Walk, Maidenhead, Berkshire, at 8.17pm on Friday.
A 42-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of murder and remains in custody.
A post-mortem examination has been carried out but was unable to establish a cause of death.
It is being treated as unexplained and toxicology tests have been ordered to examine possible causes.
A resident of the quiet cul-de-sac said Mrs Taylor had four children who were in their early 20s and late teens.
She said: "Nobody knows the circumstances yet. There were flowers left outside the house earlier.
"They kept themselves to themselves mostly, I only knew them because their children used to hang around with mine.
"She wasn't disabled but her husband was and she would look after him."
A note on a bunch of flowers left outside the house said: "Alison, RIP. A beautiful woman in chains. XXX"
