South Yorkshire Police are no closer to solving the mystery surrounding the death of a 58-year-old woman near Doncaster last month.

Val Walker was found dead at her home where she lived with her husband, early on the morning of December 9.

A 60-year-old local man was arrested on suspicion of murder soon after the body was discovered.

He was subsequently released on bail pending further investigations.

However, almost a month after the incident on Gladstone Road, Maltby, no-one else has been arrested or questioned in relation to the incident.

Furthermore, initial forensic and post-mortem investigations of the body have failed to conclusively say how Mrs Walker died.

Instead, South Yorkshire Police have said further post-mortem analysis will take place and all aspects of the investigation remain unchanged.
