A post mortem on David Hockney's assistant and friend Dominic Elliott has shown "no obvious natural causes for his death," Humberside Police has said.
Further tests will now be carried out, but their results will take some weeks.
It's being reported that a 23-year-old man has died after being taken to hospital from the home of the artist David Hockney in Bridlington.
Tributes have been paid to David Hockney's assistant Dominic Elliott by members of the rugby club where he played, as a second row, in the seaside town of Bridlington following his reported death.
The man who died after apparently being taken to hospital from the home of artist David Hockney is understood to be Dominic Elliott, one of the painter's studio assistants.
Mr Elliott, the subject of a Hockney painting in 2008, had sat for the 75-year-old artist on more than one occasion at his work space in Bridlington, East Yorkshire.
The 23-year-old had been hired from the local area and had assisted the artist with equipment on his latest projects, including last year's headlining Royal Academy show.
