Police investigating the murder of Bobbi-Anne McLeod have released one man without charge while the other is being held under a warrant of further detention. 

Assistant Chief Constable Nikki Leaper released a statement at 3pm, saying: “A significant number of enquiries and searches have been carried out overnight and into today in relation to the ongoing murder investigation in Plymouth. These enquiries remain on going across a number of scenes in and around the city.

“Earlier today, a 26-year-old man who was arrested on suspicion of murder, was released from police custody having been eliminated from the enquiry.

“A 24-year-old man remains in police custody at this time on suspicion of murder under a warrant of further detention.

“This warrant enables police to extend the time in which a person can be detained within police custody whilst an investigation is ongoing.”

The family of Bobbi-Anne continue to be supported by specialist officers.

ACC Leaper continued: “I can confirm that at this time, there is no known link between the suspect and victim and I would like to reassure the public that at this time, we are not seeking anyone else in relation to this matter.

“This remains a developing and active case and as such we would remind everyone not to speculate in relation to this matter. It is crucial that we uphold the integrity of this investigation at all times.

“Once again, I give my utmost thanks to the public and communities in Plymouth who continue to be supportive of our enquiries.”

Specialist resources are supporting officers on the ground to carry out enquiries at a number of locations and these are likely to continue over the coming days. During that time the public are likely to see an increased visible policing presence.

Anyone with information which may assist the ongoing investigation is asked to contact police on 101 quoting log 706 22/11/21.

Road closure: The Bovisand road will be closed for police access over the next day or so. Residents requiring access will be spoken to and officers at the closure can be approached for assistance if needed.
