It means officers have now ruled out all other potential causes of Libby's death, apart from her being killed by another person.

In a statement, Detective Superintendent Martin Smalley said that the post-mortem examination concluded late last night and at this stage, they will not be releasing any results for investigative and operational reasons.

An inquest into Libby’s death will be opened on Monday at Hull Coroner’s Court.

“In regards to our investigation, while we have considered throughout the missing person inquiry that Libby may have come to some harm, Libby’s death and the recovery of her body now leads us to solely investigate as a potential homicide.

– Detective Superintendent Martin Smalley
