A 28-year-old man arrested on suspicion of murder as part of the investigation into the killing of Scott Cooper has been bailed with conditions, Police have confirmed.

The unnamed individual was 1 of 3 people arrested last week following the discovery of Mr Cooper’s body at a flat in George Street, Ryde.

Officers are said to have come across a bloody crime scene, with forensic investigators having spent 6 days examining the property so far. Specialist officers remain at the murder scene in Ryde with a cordon still in place outside the block of flats. A cordon is also in place across the door to a flat accessed from the entrance corridor.

Hampshire Constabulary confirmed on Saturday that a 29-year-old man had already been released on conditional bail but that Piers Brazier, 38, had been charged with murder. Brazier appeared before Winchester Crown Court earlier today but did not enter a plea, with the case adjourned until 14th March.

Now, it has been revealed that the third suspect – a 28-year-old Island man – has also been bailed with conditions as Police continue to investigate the circumstances of Scott’s killing.
