Police officers and family members were among those arriving in Huntingdon today for the inquest into the death of murder victim Una Crown.
The 86 year-old widow was found at Magazine Lane, Wisbech, on January 13, 2013. She had been stabbed and set on fire, although it was two days before detectives realised she had been murdered.
A man arrested on suspicion of murdering Una Crown in her home has been released with no further action.
A 44-year-old man from Wisbech was arrested and bailed last November. He has now been released “due to insufficient evidence”. No-one has yet been charged.
She was last seen on Friday January 11, but made a telephone call to a friend at about 5pm the following day.
Four people have so far been arrested and released by officers investigating her death.
A £10,000 Crimestoppers reward has been offered for information which leads to the arrest and conviction of those responsible for the murder.
