The police also claimed they have cracked the mystery and the details would be revealed "at the right time".

Police sources told Khaleej Times that Riad Al Azzawi, a British national of Iraqi origin who was the singer's bodyguard and is now in the UK, another Briton of Iraqi origin who visited her apartment on the day of her death and the singer's cousin had "no links with Suzan's murder", contrary to speculation.

British Embassy officials confirmed to Khaleej Times that a Briton was assisting the police with the inquiry. "We have offered him full consular assistance," said the official.

Police sources said investigations revealed that the three had no connection with the death of the 31-year-old celebrity. Her body was found with stab injuries in her apartment in Dubai Marina on July 28.

According to media reports, her lawyer, Carla Al Rumaili, said she had been denied access to Tamim by her bodyguard, Al Azzawi. In an interview to Jaras TV, Rumaili also claimed that she had felt the singer was in danger when she went to visit her in London last year.
