Last updated at 15:33, Wednesday, 04 June 2014
DETECTIVES are continuing to investigate the death of a 25-year-old woman found in a Barrow flat.
Rebecca Carmella Marvin lost her life on May 19 and a pensioner was arrested on suspicion of her murder.
An inquest has been opened and adjourned while further inquiries take place.
Police are also waiting for the results of tests to try and establish the cause of death.
A 68-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of killing her and released on police bail until July 4.
Police were called to an address in Napier Street, Barrow, by ambulance staff on May 18 at 9.42am.
Neighbours described their shock after they were alerted to what had happened by officers carrying out door-to-door inquiries.
Detectives are still appealing for anyone who had been in the vicinity of Napier Street on the evening of May 17 and early hours of May 18 who may have heard or seen an argument between a man and a woman.
They said her death was being treated as unexplained and the circumstances are under investigation.
Police said a post mortem had been conducted, with further tests being required before a cause of death can be confirmed.
Last month her family described Miss Marvin as a “deeply loved” and “kind-hearted” young woman.
They appealed for the public’s help to try and find out what happened that night.
Speaking at the time they said: “We want anybody who knows anything to come forward, anybody who saw her or knew what she was doing. Any little thing could help us understand what has happened. Please contact the police with any information.”
Anyone with any information is asked to contact Cumbria police on 101 and speak to detectives at Barrow CID, quoting reference Operation Shade.
