A man arrested Monday after a woman's body was found in an Antelope storage locker has been released due to a lack of evidence, authorities said.
Thomas Bennett, 38, was taken into custody on the night of July 1 after approaching two officers and telling them that a woman could be found at the storage facility on the 3600 block of Blackfoot Way.
Bennett, a transient with no local criminal history, was released Wednesday evening, said Sgt. Jason Ramos of the Sacramento County Sheriff's Department. Bennett did not own the storage locker, and an attendant at the facility declined to identify its owner to a Bee reporter.
The body found in the storage locker was that of a woman in her 20's, authorities said. A cause of death has not been specified, nor has the woman been positively identified.
The sheriff's department is still investigating. Those with information about the case are asked to contact the sheriff's department, (916) 874-5115.
