Two men have been released without charge after they were arrested following the discovery of a woman’s body at a flat in North Lynn.
The 28-year-old woman was found at an address in Richmond Place at around 10.30pm on Sunday night. A post-mortem examination subsequently showed the woman’s death was not suspicious, although further toxicology tests are being carried out in order to establish the precise cause.
Two men, one in his late 30s and the other in his late 20s, both of whom are believed to have been known to the woman, were arrested following the discovery.
But police confirmed last night that they had been released without charge.
Several neighbours yesterday said they were not prepared to comment on the incident for fear of repercussions.
But Carl Stacey, 27, who lives in the same block of flats – owned by Broadland Housing Association – said he had been up to complain about the noise caused by those upstairs only hours before the body was discovered.
He said: “There’s only supposed to be one guy living up there, but he always has lots of people round.
“On Thursday, Broadland were round fixing his front door because someone had kicked it in.
“Yesterday, I saw them coming back from the shop with booze and then it all started kicking off about 7pm.There was loads of noise and banging around. I went up to complain about the noise, but I didn’t see a woman up there.
“At about half past nine, it sounded like someone was trying to kick their door in, which I wasn’t happy about as my seven-year-old was trying to sleep.
“There were loads of them up there drinking and by 1midnight the police had arrived and had the guy outside. He was crying his eyes out.”
Mr Stacey said the group, who he believed were Eastern European, often started arguing among themselves within the building and in the grounds.
A spokesman for Broadland Housing Association said: “We have been made aware by the authorities of an incident at Richmond Place in King’s Lynn.
“This is an ongoing police investigation, therefore we are unable to comment further at this time”.
