Detectives granted more time to question Catherine Wells-Burr murder suspect
Detectives investigating the murder of Catherine Wells-Burr have been granted a further 36 hours to question a woman arrested on suspicion of killing her.
The development came as police today launched a fresh appeal for information from the public to identify two drivers and some people wearing high-visibility jackets spotted near the scene of her death.
Ms Wells-Burr, 23, was discovered dead in a burning car off the A358 in Ashill, near Ilminster, on Wednesday morning.
Her devastated family, from Chard in south Somerset, yesterday paid tribute to the "beautiful, caring and loving" Bath Spa University graduate.

Detective Chief Inspector Simon Crisp said today: "Investigations continue into Catherine's death and we are still working to piece together her life.
"I am particularly keen to appeal to the driver of a dark coloured people carrier that we were believe was travelling from Ilminster to Taunton, past the scene about 6.10am on Wednesday. We believe the car braked at the point of the car fire.
"I would also like to speak to anyone who saw a white transit or smaller van or was in a white transit or smaller van that was parked in the vicinity of the scene.
"My final appeal is to members of the public who saw anyone in the area wearing high-visibility jackets. These people may have information that is significant to this investigation."
A 32-year-old woman was arrested on suspicion of murder on Thursday.
A spokesperson for Avon and Somerset Police said officers had been granted a further 36 hours to question her.
