A 48 year old Manchester man is being questioned on suspiscion of murder after a body was found in the garage of a house in Cranage, near Holmes Chapel
Firefighters were called to Byley Lane yesterday morning and put out a fire before searching the property and finding the body.
Detective Inspector Steve Beddows, from Cheshire Police's Major Investigation Team, has appealed for witnesses to come forward.
He said: "We are particularly keen to speak to anyone who saw a man driving a silver Vauxhall Corsa on Byley Lane at about 10am yesterday.
"Later in Smith Lane in Mobberley we would appeal to anyone who saw a man acting suspiciously next to a silver Corsa, which firefighters were later called to as it had been set alight. We also want to speak to anyone who saw a man wearing a green or grey jacket with the hood up cycle off from Smith Lane on a bicycle towards Pepper Street."
DI Beddows also appealed to anyone who was in the village of Mobberley, near Knutsford, on Thursday and may have seen a man acting suspiciously.
He added that a post-mortem examination was due to be carried out later.
