Pensioner found strangled in house

A man in his 80's found dead at a property in Milton Keynes was strangled, according to detectives.

Police attended an address in Bancroft Park in the early hours of Friday morning and found the pensioner dead.

A 75-year-old woman arrested in connection with the investigation has been bailed until August 2 pending further inquiries.

We are now consulting with the Crown Prosecution Service as to how this case should be carried forward.

Our focus is to establish the exact circumstances around the death to best understand what and how it happened. The post-mortem result forms part of that investigation.
