Manchester Evening News reports:
The death of a teenage girl found hanged in a derelict building after she was reported missing is no longer being treated as murder, police have said.
Sarah G., 16, was discovered dead by a member of her family on Monday morning.
A 41-year-old man who was initially arrested on suspicion of murder has been released, Greater Manchester Police said.
Sarah’s death is no longer being treated as suspicious and a file will be passed to the coroner.
She was found in a derelict building on Brookside Drive in Kersal, Salford, not far from her family’s Prestwich home.
She had been reported missing at around 9.25am on Monday morning. Her body was discovered around 20 minutes later.
She was a pupil at Yavneh Girls, based at King David High School in Crumpsall. The school said in a statement: “Sarah was a lovely, bright, intelligent and well-mannered pupil and she will be hugely missed by everyone at school.”
Police said a post-mortem exam to determine a cause of death was due to be held on Tuesday afternoon. The results are yet to be released.
