A 38-year-old man arrested yesterday on suspicion of murdering Jennifer Blackwell has today (11 August 2017) been released on police bail pending further enquiries.
Following a review, in consultation with HM Coroner and the family, an investigation to establish the cause of the 43-year-old’s death was launched.
In the early hours of yesterday, Nottinghamshire Police carried out work to exhume the body of Jennifer in order to carry out a Home Office post mortem.
Investigators are continuing their work to learn what they can about the circumstances surrounding Jennifer’s death.
Jennifer’s family are being supported throughout this extremely distressing time and have requested privacy as I’m sure you can understand. They are very supportive of the work we are doing and we are accommodating their wishes as part of the very sensitive task at hand.
