A woman who's body was found in a lake at the University of East Anglia two weeks ago has been named by police.

Police have named a woman whose body was found at a lake in Norwich, as they seek to establish the circumstances surrounding her death.

Forty-three-year-old Nomeda Pundziene, a Lithuanian national living in Gertrude Road in the city, was identified on Friday 9 August 2013. Her body was discovered in the UEA Broad on the morning of Thursday 1 August. A post mortem examination proved inconclusive, however the death is not being treated as suspicious.

Norfolk Constabulary is continuing to carry out inquiries for the coroner and Detective Inspector Richard Graveling hopes that people who knew Nomeda can help piece together what happened to her:

“Her family initially had no cause for concern when they did not see her for a number of days as they believed her to be staying elsewhere. However, when they were made aware of the media coverage surrounding the discovery in the lake they came to Bethel Street Police Station and we have sadly been able to confirm that the body was that of Nomeda.

“I now want to hear from anyone who may have been with Nomeda, or saw or spoke to her between Saturday 20 July and Thursday 1 August, so I can establish her movements leading up to her death. I am very grateful for the publicity that has consistently kept this case in the public eye over the past fortnight, and hope that more people will come forward as a result of this latest appeal so I can present a full report to the coroner for inquest and give some answers to her family.”
