Death of student nurse Kellyanne Teggert in Derry 'not suspicious' - man released from custody

By Claire Cromie

Detectives do not believe the death of a student nurse in Londonderry on Thursday was suspicious.

A 21-year-old man who lived in the Creggan flat where Kellyanne Teggert's body was found has been released from police custody unconditionally.

The PSNI released him after studying the results of a post mortem examination.

Ms Teggert, 19, had started her first year as a student at the University of Ulster's Magee campus just 12 days before her death.

An ambulance crew was called to the flat just before 2.30am where they found the 19-year-old unconscious at the foot of a flight of stairs. She was later pronounced dead at Altnagelvin Hospital.

Miss Teggert's family live in Portaferry, Co Down.

Detective Chief Inspector Michael Harvey said: "A file will be prepared for the Coroner."
