Murder arrest after pensioner found dead in Halesowen

We’ve arrested a 44-year-old man on suspicion of murder after a pensioner was found dead in Halesowen earlier this week.
Our officers gained entry to a home in Manor Lane on Monday (15 November) following concerns raised by neighbours who had not seen the man for several days.
Sadly we found the 78-year-old collapsed on the living room floor, he had been dead for a number of days.
A post mortem examination this week could not determine his exact cause of death, but it’s believed to have been caused following a burglary at his house. 
Detective Inspector Ranj Sangha said: “We’re supporting the man’s family at this incredibly upsetting time. 
“While we have collected a lot of information and evidence, and made an arrest last night, we still urge anyone who may have seen or heard anything suspicious in the area to please get in touch.
“We are looking for information dating back to the start of November.”
