A 51-year-old man has been arrested over the murder of a woman who disappeared in 2003, police said.

The remains of Becky Godden-Edwards were later found in a field.

Superintendent Sean Memory, of Wiltshire Police, said: ” We can confirm that a 51-year-old man from Swindon was arrested today on suspicion of the murder of Becky Godden (also known as Rebecca Godden Edwards). He has been interviewed and inquiries continue.”

The remains of Miss Godden were found in a field in Eastleach, Gloucestershire, in 2011.

Police have continued their investigation into the death of the 21-year-old, who had drifted into drugs and prostitution, in a bid to bring her killer to justice.

Officers have distributed renewed appeal posters in the local area and urged anyone who saw Miss Godden over Christmas 2002 and into the new year to get in touch.

Mr Memory has said: “We know that Becky was last seen on December 27 2002 and we need people to come forward with any information about where she was in early 2003. Did you see Becky over the new year period?”
