Police have continued to have a strong presence near a country park, a week after a woman's body was found in a pond.
At just before 7am on Friday, April 9, the body of 35-year-old Egle Vengaliene was found at Brandon Country Park.
Her husband, Andrius Vengalis, of Bury Road in the town, was arrested and later charged with her murder - and is due to appear at Ipswich Crown Court in July.
A week on from Mrs Vengaliene's death and police have renewed appeals for anybody with information about the incident to come forward.
And anybody who knew the couple who has yet to speak to officers is urged to contact the constabulary.
Between 10pm on Thursday evening and 8am on Friday officers carried out further checks of the areas surrounding Brandon Country Park and Bury Road and have spoken with people who were around at the time.
Vengalis, 46, was arrested on the day of his wife's body was found and questioned throughout the weekend, before being charged on Monday.
