A MAN arrested on suspicion of murder following the death of a woman in Leicestershire has been released with no further action.
The body of Elaine Geoghegan, 70, was found face down in a pond in her back garden in Shelland Close, Market Harborough, on Monday, August 12, 2019.
Following an investigation, police say there is insufficient evidence to proceed with a criminal enquiry.
An initial post mortem examination concluded the cause of Mrs Geoghegan's death was unascertained.
However subsequent enquiries led police to launch a murder investigation.
In November 2020, a 71-year-old man from Market Harborough was arrested on suspicion of murder and released on bail.
He has now been released with no further action.
"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," said Detective Inspector Nicole Main of Leicestershire Police.
"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."
