A man arrested by Suffolk police investigating the death of an 88-year-old woman in Capel St Mary has been released on bail.

The 43-year-old was detained in Ipswich on Tuesday March 10 after the discovery of the woman's body the day before.

Police said she has been provisionally identified - pending Coroner's inquest proceedings - as Miriam Rhodes, also known as Isobel Rhodes.

She is understood to have been a retired Woodbridge antiques dealer.

Officers were called to an address near Mill Hall in the village around 12.50pm on March 10 following the discovery of a body at the property.

Ms Rhodes' death was not initially believed to be suspicious but following police inquiries detectives suspected there may have been third party involvement.

The man - who was questioned at Martlesham Police Investigation Centre - is due to answer bail on Thursday April 9.
