But today, South Yorkshire Police said it is now being treated as ‘unexplained’ after a post mortem examination proved inconclusive.

A 59-year-old Rotherham man who was arrested on suspicion of robbery and murder has since been released without charge.

South Yorkshire Police said: “Officers would like to hear from any witnesses to this incident, and are especially keen to trace two men who were seen with the woman shortly before emergency services were called.”

Anyone with information should call 101 and quote incident number 775 of February 5.
