Man charged with murder after country park death

A man has been charged with murder following the death of a woman at Brandon Country Park last week.

Officers were called by the ambulance service shortly before 7am on Friday 9th April following reports that the body of a woman had been found in the water at Brandon Country Park.

Subject to confirmation at formal inquest proceedings, the deceased has been identified as Egle Vengaliene, aged 35, of Bury Road, Brandon.

A 46 year old man was arrested in connection with the incident early Friday afternoon and taken to Bury St Edmunds Police Investigation Centre for questioning.

Andrius Vengalis, of Bury Road in Brandon, has subsequently been charged with murder and remanded in custody to appear before Ipswich Magistrates’ Court tomorrow, Tuesday 13th April.

A large area of Brandon Country Park remains cordoned off by police as various searches and other enquiries are ongoing.

The investigation is ongoing and officers remain keen to hear from anybody who knew Egle and have not yet been in contact with police, or from anyone with a recent sighting of her prior to 7am on Friday morning.

Detectives are also continuing to appeal for witnesses, particularly anyone who was in the area of Brandon Country Park, Bury Road or the surrounding streets, and who may have seen or heard anything suspicious.

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.
