Stuart Lubbock: Suspect in murder case released without charge

Continuing the discussion from Channel 4's Barrymore, The Body in The Pool - 06/02/20:

A man arrested on suspicion of the murder and indecent assault of Stuart Lubbock at the home of entertainer Michael Barrymore has been released without charge. Essex Police said there was “insufficient evidence” to charge the unnamed suspect, who is 50.

Det Ch Insp Stephen Jennings said: “We have explored all possible lines of inquiry and sometimes, regrettably, the evidence is not yet there to issue charges. I know that this may be of little comfort to Stuart’s father and his family.”

Det Ch Insp Jennings said the investigation into the death remained open. He said: “All we want is to deliver justice for Mr Lubbock and his family. We have never given up on finding out exactly what happened to Stuart.”

Essex Police said the decision not to charge the 50-year-old man had been taken with the Crown Prosecution Service. He had been arrested in Cheshire on 17 March.

That’s probably that, then … Stuart’s father, who is very ill, will die soon without discovering who killed his son … :slightly_frowning_face:

Doesn’t take much working out what happened and by whom.

Proving it has always been the problem - there’s a conspiracy of silence … :zipper_mouth_face:

The offending weapon disappeared, like you say, silence.

Never hear about the two women that were there , they also know something. All very strange . Poor Stuart
