The body of 17-year-old Jayden Parkinson, who used to live in Folkestone, was discovered in a disturbed grave in Oxfordshire last December.
A 48-year-old, from Didcot, being held by police on suspicion of perverting the course of justice has now been released on police bail Friday, March 14.
Jayden's former boyfriend - 22-year-old Ben Blakeley, from Reading - has been charged with her murder and perverting the course of justice.
A 17-year-old boy from Didcot has also been charged with perverting the course of justice.
Earlier this month, Jayden's funeral was held at St Martin's Church in Horn Street, Cheriton.

Jayden and her family lived in Tennyson Place in Folkestone before moving away several years ago.
