Bestival death: man released by police but remains under investigation

Bestival death: man released by police but remains under investigation”

In a statement, Mr Michie's agent said: "Sadly, I can confirm the tragic death of John Michie's daughter, Louella, at Bestival".

However, Broughton, who was the longterm boyfriend of the deceased, was re-arrested over potentially supplying a class A drug which may have killed Miss Michie - the daughter of famous television soap actor John Michie, according to the Mail.

Officers were alerted to concerns for the welfare of Michie, who was attending the event, just before 1am and her body was located following a search. Louella's parents drove from their north London home to the Bestival site in Dorset on Monday morning having reportedly received a panicked phone call and a WhatsApp map pinpointing her location from the suspect.

A search of the woods was then conducted by staff and Michie's body was found.

A post-mortem examination revealed no signs of an assault on Ms Michie, although further tests were needed to establish the cause of her death, police said.

Ceon Broughton, 28, who was initially arrested on suspicion of murdering Louella Michie on her 25th birthday at Bestival, has been released by police pending further investigation. "He has now been released under investigation".

"An investigation is underway to establish the circumstances surrounding her death and a cordon is in place on site while forensic examinations are being carried out".

A statement to The Sun repeated that they did not believe there to have been "any malice" involved in her time at the festival. She'd got back with him three weeks ago after years of an on-off relationship.

Yesterday a friend of dancer and model Louella, whose godfather is One Foot In The Grave star Richard Wilson, claimed she was an infrequent user of drugs. "We would ask that their privacy is respected".

It added: "Our hearts are broken by this tragedy".

He said: "We do not believe there to have been any malice intended in [their] weekend at Bestival. The family would like to thank everyone for their heartfelt tributes and messages".

Mr Michie has two other children, Daisy, 27, a stylist, and Samuel, 26, a music video director.
