POLICE investigating the death of a 25-year-old woman at Bestival have said they are carrying out more tests to establish why she died, after the results of a post-mortem were inconclusive.
The woman has been named as Louella Eve Fletcher-Michie, the daughter of Holby City actor John Michie.
A 28-year-old man arrested on suspicion of murder following her death was also interviewed on suspicion of supply of a controlled drug. The man, who was known to Louella, has been released from custody, but remains under investigation, according to Dorset police.
A Dorset Police spokesman said: "An initial post-mortem examination took place on Monday, which showed no clear signs of an assault. However, further examinations will need to take place over the coming weeks, including toxicology, in order to establish if there are any substances in her system or other suspicious circumstances."
Detective Chief Inspector Sarah Derbyshire, of Dorset Police, added: "Detectives are working tirelessly to investigate the full circumstances surrounding this tragic death.
"A post mortem examination took place that was inconclusive and therefore we need to undertake a number of other examinations before we can establish why she died."
She added: "We continue to work with the festival organisers and our thoughts are with Louella's family at this extremely difficult time. We would ask that their privacy is respected."
Anyone with information is asked to contact Dorset Police at www.dorset.police.uk, via email [email protected] or by calling 101, quoting incident number 11:36. Alternatively, contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111 or via www.crimestoppers-uk.org.
