"The man has been arrested on suspicion of supplying a class A drug and is being held in custody at Ipswich Police Station."
Friends and neighbours have paid tribute to the young woman, who was described as a "lovely girl".
Claire Robinson, 21, of Ipswich, who was one of the people who found Miss Hurn's body, said: "She had a lot going for her. I feel sorry for her family.
"It is just sad to see that something like this could happen to her. She was a lovely girl, really nice.''
Mother-of-two Leila Fox, who lived next door to the dead girl, said she went to the flat and saw her on the settee lying on her back with her left arm hanging off the sofa.
Ms Fox said: "I felt physically sick. I keep reliving the image of her. I can't get it out of my head."
She said neighbours had heard groaning noises from the flat where the teenager lived alone on Wednesday night, but when Ms Fox banged on the door to see if she was all right the noises had stopped and she thought no more of it.
Ms Robinson was struck by the state of the flat.
She said: "It wasn't lived in, really. It was all messy.
"There were lots of things all over the coffee table.
"It looked as though someone had just gone in and not bothered to put things away, and things like food containers were all over the floor."
