An investigation is underway after the body of a man was found at a house in Willenhall, Walsall earlier today (Wednesday 22 August).
Police were called to a flat on Bloxwich Road South just before 12.30pm by ambulance colleagues, who had been alerted by a member of the public.
The man, thought to be in his 30s, is yet to be identified and was found deceased. Detectives are currently treating his death as unexplained.
Forensic investigators are examining the scene and officers are conducting house to house enquiries to see if anyone saw anything suspicious at the property.
Detective Inspector Paul Joyce, from the Homicide Unit, said: “We are in the very early stages of our enquiry and we are trying to understand the circumstances around this man’s death.
“A post mortem examination will take place in due course to establish the exact cause of death, but in the meantime, I would ask anyone with information which could assist us to call my team on 101.”
Information can also be given to Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
