Wisbech murder: Una Crown suspect released on bail

Una Crown and Jack Crown Mrs Crown ran Elm Post Office with her late husband Jack after they got married in 1948

A man arrested on suspicion of murdering an 86-year-old woman found dead at her home has been released on bail.

Una Crown's body was discovered burned and with stab wounds in Wisbech on 13 January.

Cambridgeshire Police arrested a 58-year-old man in connection with her death on Thursday. He was bailed on Friday afternoon.

Post-mortem tests revealed Mrs Crown died from her injuries.

Police said they believe there was an electrical fault with the hob on Mrs Crown's cooker, but could not confirm whether that started the fire or whether an accelerant was used.

Three men were seen near her home on the Saturday night between about 23:30 and 23:45 GMT, the force said.

A £10,000 reward is being offered for information which leads to the conviction of her killer.
