Jaqueline Walker, who was 59, was found dead in Bath Road, Stonehouse, near Stroud, in the early hours of November 28.

Her identity was confirmed by Gloucestershire Coroners Service.

Gloucestershire police officers have thanked people who came forward with information to help their investigation and called on anyone who had not yet come forward to call them on 101, quoting incident reference number 013 of November 28.
