SHOCKED Riverhead residents awoke today to the tragic sight of a dead body lying by the side of the road. The woman, who has not yet been named, was discovered in Witches' Lane, yards from Amherst School and Riverhead Infants' School. Eyewitness Elizabeth Wilkins, who lives in the road, said: "I was shocked and I feel sorry for the lady. It's scary. "This sort of thing doesn't really happen around here very often." Police were called to the scene at about 9.20am and immediately cordoned off a section on the road to carry out an investigation. A forensic team examined a black BMW parked near to where the woman was found. A Kent Police spokesman said: "The incident is not being treated as suspicious, though it is unexplained. "It is not believed that there is a third party involved."
