Today police cars and officers were stationed outside the complex as forensics teams scoured for clues.

A resident who lives in the block told the Express and Star: "I woke up and saw the police outside and sheeting over someone in the car park. It’s awful, I’ve heard who it was and she was really young, in her twenties."

Professor Julia Clarke, Deputy Vice-Chancellor at the University of Wolverhampton, confirmed the woman was a student, the Express and Star reports.

She added: "The thoughts of the University community are with the student’s family and friends and we are providing support to our students and staff at this very sad time."
