Investigations into the teenager’s death has so far led to the arrest of a 31-year-old man, who currently remains in custody on suspicion of murder.

Officers have said that they are currently not looking for anyone else in relation to her death.

Detectives have released a photograph of Lily taken just a few hours before her body was found and have urged anyone who saw the 18-year-old the same night to come forward with any information they may have.

Police hope that those who saw Lily that night may be able to recognise her by her clothes in the photograph, in which she is seen wearing a white cropped top, blue jeans with ripped knees, white belt and black patent boots.

She is also described as having a spider tattoo on her chest and had black and bleached hair.

A force spokesman said: “Her family is being supported by specialist officers.

“A 31-year-old man arrested on suspicion of murder remains in police custody at this time.

“Anyone who may have information that could assist the investigation is asked to get in touch.”
