Ms Collingbourne, 26, was found at her home in Ivel Court on Tuesday evening and was pronounced dead at the scene.
Officers say the person in the high-vis jacket was in the vicinity of Ivel Court at about 8am and again at 12.30pm on Monday.

A 52-year-old woman from Hitchin arrested on suspicion of murder on Thursday remains in police custody.
