Death of Morgan Green of Ely was not murder, say police

Police investigating the death of a woman in Ely a week ago are no longer treating it as a murder.

Morgan Green, 29, was found dead at her home in High Barns, Ely, on the afternoon of December 1.

Detective Inspector Dale Mepstead said that following a post mortem examination, Morgan’s death is no longer being treated as suspicious.

“However, an investigation into what happened continues.” he said.

Five people were arrested in connection with her death.

A 38-year-old woman, a 53-year-old man and a 30-year-old man, all from Littleport, who were arrested on suspicion of murder, have been released under investigation.

Tony Adams, 29, of New Road, Littleport, appeared before Peterborough magistrates’ last week for possession with intent to supply class A drugs and was remanded.

DI Mepstead said: “After a thorough investigation and post mortem results, we are no longer treating this as a murder investigation.

Two friends of Morgan have launched a fund-raising appeal to pay funeral costs.

“I’m doing this so we can give Morgan the best send off and make this difficult time a bit easier for her family.

“Fly high you beautiful girl.”

“She was a friend of mine and I will stick up for her as she is not here to do that,” wrote one woman.

“She has family and friends that adored her. Everyone goes down different paths but I won’t have someone slate her either.”

Another wrote that “her family and friends will be heartbroken”.

One other friend posted: “She was a lovely person but there will always be someone with a bad mouth and it’s nice to see her friends standing her ground as a friend who knew her”.

Others tributes included “RIP babe, you will be missed by lots. You drove us crazy at times but we’ll never forget you xxx”.

Despite efforts from paramedics and medical staff, Morgan was pronounced dead at the scene.
