Murdered student hard-working and cheerful, says college
A woman with learning difficulties whose death has sparked a murder investigation was a hard-working and "cheerful" student, her college has said.
Susan Whiting's principal, Jev Bhalla, said: "We're waiting for news with sunken hearts," after detectives searching for the girl found a body at a house in Walsall, West Midlands, on Tuesday.
Ms Whiting was reported missing by her family on Monday after failing to meet her mother for a lift home.
West Midlands Police cordoned off a bungalow in Walsall on Tuesday morning and arrested two people after the body was found.
Detectives are continuing to question a local 34-year-old man and a 35-year-old woman, both arrested on suspicion of murder.
Neighbours in the quiet cul-de-sac described the pair as "a lovely couple". Police activity at the property is continuing, with a forensics tent set up in open-plan gardens next to the bungalow.
The 20-year-old was a student at Walsall Adult and Community College, whose principal Mr Bhalla praised her as a young woman growing in confidence.
He said Ms Whiting had been studying at its Leamore campus for three years.
