Police are investigating after a man’s body was found at a house in Full Sutton in East Yorkshire.

Police were called to Whisker Cottage in the Full Sutton area after someone called the police worried about the resident there.

Police entered the house yesterday and discovered the body of a man believed to be in his 50s. 

It’s thought his death was unexplained, police now say it’s suspicious. 

Detective Chief Inspector Alistair McFarlane said; "We are now treating the death as suspicious and undertaking enquiries to establish events which led to this man losing his life.  We are also seeking to confirm his identity and locate any next of kin. 

"Although very much in the early stages of the investigation, we have not managed to trace any family or friends who are able to identify the man, nor is there an apparent motive for his murder. 

"We are keen to hear from anyone who might have information about the victim, who is believed to have been the occupier of Whisker Cottage.

The cause of the man's death currently remains unconfirmed until a post mortem can take place.
