Craigavon body find: Man's death treated as suspicious

The PSNI is treating the death of a man in his 30s in Craigavon, County Armagh, as suspicious.

The man's body was found in a flat in the Dingwell Park area at lunchtime on Tuesday October 13.

The property has been cordoned off and forensic investigators are at the scene.

Detective Chief Inspector Eamonn Corrigan, who is leading the enquiry, said: "If anyone saw anything unusual in the Dingwell Park area in recent days, we would like them to contact detectives at Mahon Road police station by calling the non-emergency number 101.

"Information can also be passed anonymously via the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111."

Sinn Féin MLA John O Dowd said it was a "tragic event".

He said: "It is still early in the police investigation on the circumstances surrounding this death. Our thoughts must be with the family and friends of those affected.

“Everyone in the Taghnevan and wider community will be shocked by this death.

“At this stage I would call on anyone with any information whatsoever to contact the PSNI.”
