A man arrested on suspicion of murder following the death of a woman in Market Harborough has been released with no further action.
The body of Elaine Geoghegan, 70, was found in her back garden in Shelland Close on Monday 12 August 2019.
A post mortem examination concluded the cause of Mrs Geoghegan’s death was unascertained.
Enquiries carried out since Mrs Geoghegan’s death led police to launch a murder investigation and in November 2020, a 71-year-old man from Market Harborough, was arrested on suspicion of murder. He was then released on bail pending further enquiries.
Following a full investigation there is insufficient evidence to proceed with a criminal enquiry into the death of Mrs Geoghegan and a file will be submitted to HM Coroner. The man arrested has now been released with no further action.
Detective Inspector Nicole Main said: “This has been a complex case which has been fully investigated over the past two years to establish the circumstances of Mrs Geoghegan’s death. Following these enquiries, a man who was arrested on suspicion of murder has now been released with no further action.
“Thank you to everyone who has assisted us with our enquiries and the team of officers and staff who have worked so hard on this investigation to establish the full facts.
“Our thoughts remain with the family of Mrs Geoghegan.”
