POLICE are no longer treating the death of a 16-year-old girl who was found hanged in a derelict building in Greater Manchester as suspicious.
Sarah Goldman was discovered in an abandoned house in Kersal, Salford, on Monday.
The teenager reportedly told her family she was going to the gym at 5.30am.
Her body was found 20 minutes later in the abandoned shack near Kersal, Salford.
Paramedics were already in attendance as police arrived but the girl was pronounced dead at the scene.
A 41-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of murder but has since been released.
The force also said it was no longer treating the death as suspicious.
A post mortem is due to be carried out to establish the cause of death.
‘IT’S VERY SAD’
A neighbour, who didn’t wish to be named, told The Sun Online: “The girl lived nearby.
“There’s a path that you can take from her house through the woods to the derelict house where she was found.
“I was told she was found hanged by one of her family.
“There were lots of police here yesterday asking if any of the neighbours had seen the girl. It’s very sad.”
Sarah’s school King David High School in the Crumpsall area of Manchester described her a “lovely, bright pupil”.
Chair of governors Joshua Rowe said: “Sarah was a lovely, bright, intelligent and well-mannered pupil and she will be hugely missed by everyone at school”
