A 43-year-old man was also arrested on suspicion of assisting an offender. He has since been released after being eliminated from enquiries.

In a statement, Pauline’s family said the whole family was in shock over her death.

Officers continue their investigation, and Detective Inspector Steve Wragg, from Nottinghamshire Police, said specialist officers will continue to work with Pauline’s family.
