Man's body found in park

The PSNI last night revealed that they are not treating as suspicious the death of a young man whose body was found in Lurgan.

A passer-by discovered the body of a man in his 20s in a wooded area of Lurgan Park around 9.30am yesterday.

Following the discovery, the police have appealed to the public for information about the man's identify.

When found, he was wearing a t-shirt bearing a cartoon of the A-Team character Mr T, jeans and desert boots.

He also had a tattoo of a Celtic chain around his upper left arm, with a smaller, home-made tattoo of a cross on his wrist.

Around tea-time yesterday, a PSNI spokeswoman revealed the body had been identified to local officers. She added: "His death is not being treated as suspicious."
