Women’s death case closes

More news, no ads



The police investigation into the death of a woman found with serious head injuries has closed.

The investigation into the circumstances surrounding the death of Miss Holly Jones will not reopen unless fresh evidence comes to light.

At an inquest in Nottingham on Wednesday into the death of Miss Jones the Nottinghamshire coroner, Dr Nigel Chapman, recorded an open verdict.

Miss Jones (26) a university graduate, of Pelham Gardens, Newark, died in Lincoln County Hospital two days after being found unconscious at home at about 5pm on March 13.

At the inquest Dr Chapman said the cause of death was head injuries in association with acute alcoholic liver damage.

Dr Chapman said there had been a huge investigation into Miss Jones’s death.

He said the police interviewed a number of people and sealed off areas around her home, but no one had been charged.

Dr Chapman said he was returning an open verdict and there would be another police investigation if new evidence came to light.

After the inquest, Detective Inspector Dave Sinclair, who led the inquiry, said it was never satisfying to leave questions unanswered, but he was content his team had done all it could.

A man from Melton Mowbray previously on police bail was released without charge.
