A 20-year-old man who was arrested on Friday, on suspicion of murder, has since been released from police custody.
He is to face no further police action, the force statement added.

A large section of the A46 was closed for hours on Friday as police investigated the crash, which reportedly saw one vehicle smash into the central reservation.
Southbound drivers left to join the A606 and follow a diversion along rural roads while northbound motorists were diverted in Syston, Leicestershire, onto the A607.
