Police bail man after Lincoln Prison murder arrest

Suspect bailed: Police have bailed a man relating to the murder investigation at Lincoln Prison.

Lincolnshire Police have bailed a man arrested in connection with the murder of a Lincoln Prison inmate on October 31.

As previously reported, police were called to Lincoln Prison on Thursday after 73-year-old inmate Alan Goode was found dead in his cell in the early hours of the morning.

A murder investigation was launched and a 35-year-old male inmate, believed to be Goode’s cellmate, was arrested in connection with the incident.

The suspect has since been bailed from police custody back to prison for psychological assessments to be carried out.

Yesterday a Home Office post mortem was carried out at QMC in Nottingham and the cause of death was established as a serious head injury.

DI Helen Evans said: “We continue to work with HMP Lincoln and the Ministry of Justice to further our investigation.”

Alan Goode was from Wigston. He was jailed for serial voyeurism for nine months in October after he was found in the women’s toilets in a Leicester shopping centre spying on women.
