They have been arrested after conflicting accounts about where Pat had stayed.
Today Det Supt Derek Deakin, leading the murder hunt, said the three had been released on bail, pending further inquiries.

She was chatting to the man at about 7:45am at the junction of Holgate Crescent and Holgate Road on Saturday August 9. The man was white, aged about 30, five feet six to eight inches tall with dark hair, greasy or gelled.
