Murder investigation into death of Gorleston man is dropped
Three people arrested in connection with the death of a Gorleston man will have no further action taken against them.
Malcolm Pratt, 51, known as Hank, was found collapsed in his home on Exeter Road on July 15 and died on July 26 in Addenbrooke's Hospital, Cambridge.
Two men from Great Yarmouth, aged 30 and 33, and a 31-year-old woman, also from Yarmouth, were arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to murder.
Following a four month investigation, during which the Major Investigation Team reviewed pathology reports and consulted the Crown Prosecution Service, the evidence was not sufficient to take the inquiry forward.
Police have therefore decided that no further action will be taken against these three people.
