British police announced last night that two men, aged 17 and 19, had been released on bail while the investigation continued into the death of Emily Longley.

Emily, a 17-year-old aspiring model, was found dead on Saturday morning at the home of a relative in Bournemouth, southwest England.

Her father Mark said he had very little information about how Emily died but was hoping police investigations would have progressed by the time he landed in the UK, the New Zealand Herald reports.

British police told Emily’s mother, Caroline Longley, of her death at 2am on Mother’s Day.  “It was the worst news you could ever hear on Mother’s Day,” she said.

Two days before Emily was found dead she posted on Facebook that she had a stalker and had been receiving creepy calls from a blocked number.

The next day, she posted that she was “down and out”.

Emily had moved to England to live with family after she left Westlake Girls High School in Auckland. She was reportedly involved in the Auckland drug scene before her parents encouraged the move to England.
