Man arrested as murder investigation launched in Walsall

We've arrested a man on suspicion of murder after another man was found dead at a house in Walsall yesterday morning (24 May).

Officers gained entry to the property in Broad Lane, Bloxwich, at around 10.15am following concerns for the welfare of a 51-year-old man who lived there. He was sadly confirmed dead at the scene. 

A forensic post mortem will take place in due course to establish the cause of death.

A 24-year-old man - understood to be known to the deceased - was arrested last night on suspicion of murder and remains in custody for questioning.

Detective Inspector Laura Harrison, from our homicide unit, said: "This is now an active murder investigation and we're working to establish the full circumstances of how this man sadly died.

"Following our initial enquiries we detained a man on suspicion of murder in the Bloxwich area last night and at this stage we believe this is domestic-related. 

“Our enquiries are ongoing and I'd urge anyone with information to contact us as soon as possible."
