Police still treating Kevin Broom death as suspicious

By Lesley-Anne Henry

Police are continuing to treat the death of a man in Co Down as suspicious after a post-mortem proved inconclusive.

The man, who has been named locally as Kevin Broom, was found dead at a flat in Sullivan Close sheltered accommodation in the centre of Holywood on Wednesday afternoon.

A post-mortem examination was carried out yesterday: however the results were unable to move the PSNI investigation forward.

Mr Broom, who was in his 50s, lived alone at the first floor property which is part of a private housing scheme run by Habinteg Housing Association.

It is believed he suffered a head injury.

A spokesman for the PSNI said the death was not being treated as a murder but said initial inquiries suggested there were suspicious circumstances.

He said an investigation was under way to establish exactly how he died.

Yesterday the flat remained sealed off with police tape over the front door and a uniformed officer standing guard.
