Hatfield murder victim was strangled

A HATFIELD woman who was found dead in her home was strangled.

An international murder hunt was launched for Angela Hoyt's ex-partner after her body was discovered in Glebeland, Hatfield on Tuesday.

Canadian-born Angela, 34, had recently returned to her Hatfield home after three months' work with the Red Cross in Pakistan.

Her family were due to fly into the UK today, to formally identify her body.

Her ex-partner Martin Collett is wanted for the murder and is still being hunted by police.
