West Midlands Police wish to find David Williams, pictured, after he was reported missing from home the day before his mother’s body was discovered

A murder investigation has been launched after a woman was found dead at home as police release a picture of her son who is now missing.

Julie Williams, 58, was found in her flat just before 11pm on Sunday (25/10) after concerns were raised about her welfare.

Police and paramedics dashed to the apartment in Emily Smith House in Riley Square Coventry where they found her dead.

No cause of death has been given and a post mortem will be carried out tomorrow.

Detectives are now searching for her son David, 32, who lived with his mother.

He was last seen on October 20 and reported missing on Saturday evening – the day before his mother was killed.

West Midlands Police say Mr Williams is not a suspect in the murder but is currently being treated as a missing person.

Detective Inspector Jim Mahon said: ‘We’re still trying to establish exactly what happened to Julie, and are working to understand if her son’s disappearance is in any way linked to her murder.

‘We’d ask for anyone who has seen Mr Williams over the last week, or who saw anything suspicious at around Emily Smith House in recent days, to get in touch.’
