Police are no longer treating the death of a woman in Clacton as suspicious.

Isabella Mitchell, 45, was found dead at an address in Wellesley Road at around 3.10pm on Monday, July 15.

Essex Police subsequently launched a murder investigation and appealed for help from the public.

A post-mortem examination was held yesterday and established there were no signs that she had been assaulted or she had injuries that would have been inflicted by someone else.

It was not able to determine a cause of death, however, so further tests will be needed.

As a result police are now treating Isabella’s death as unexplained.

A 52 year-old man who was arrested on suspicion of murder has been released under investigation.

Senior investigating officer Detective Chief Inspector Daniel Stoten, from the Kent and Essex Serious Crime Directorate, said: “Following the discovery of Isabella’s death we carried out a thorough investigation into the circumstances around how she died.

“Our initial enquiries indicated there were grounds to believe her death may have been suspicious.

“A post-mortem examination was carried out which has now shown no-one else was involved in her death although further tests are needed to identify what the cause of death is.

“As a result we are now treating Isabella’s death as unexplained rather than suspicious.”
