The sudden death of a 28-year-old woman at a Hampshire flat could be linked to substance misuse, police have said.
Sasha Barber was found at an address in Clarendon Road, Southsea, on Saturday.
A powder found at the flat is now being analysed by police to establish what it is and whether it is connected to her death.
A 20-year-old man arrested in connection with Miss Barber's death has been released without charge. Her death is not being treated as suspicious.
A Hampshire police spokesman said: "We can confirm substance misuse is being investigated as part of inquiries to establish the woman's cause of death.
"A post-mortem examination and toxicology tests will take place in due course as police prepare a file for HM Coroner.
"Powder was seized from the address. This is being analysed to confirm its contents and identity."
