TV crew reporting from Bishopstoke last Thursday morning.

Police hunting for the killer of frail pensioner Georgina Edmonds, who was battered to death at her Brambridge home over two years ago, have released the suspect they arrested Wednesday morning.

The 31 year old man had been arrested at his mother’s home in Hamilton Road, Bishopstoke at 5 am on June 30.

At the same time premises in The Crescent in Eastleigh’s Newtown estate – to which to which the suspect had links, were also subjected to a Police search.

The man had been held in custody without charge for 88 hours and has been released on Police bail until October 5 while Police continue to make enquires.

In January the police announced they had made a forensic breakthrough and launched a poster campaign in the Boyatt Wood and North Eastleigh area – at the same time DNA swabs were from local people.

Early in June the Police found an item believed to be significant while searching the river Itchen.

A £30,000 reward is being offered for information leading to the arrest of Mrs Edmonds killer.
