Murder investigation launched after man found dead in Coventry flat

We’ve launched a murder investigation after a man was found dead at a flat in Coventry last night (Monday 1 June). 

The 57-year-old man was found in Eden Street at around 7:30pm.

A 54-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of murder and is currently in custody.

Detective Inspector Hannah Whitehouse from our homicide team said: “We’re in the very early stages of our investigation.

“A man has sadly lost his life so we’re doing all we can to determine what happened to him and who was responsible.

“I’d urge anyone who may have seen anything suspicious, or who has any information to contact us as soon as possible."

Anyone with information can contact us Live Chat on our website or call 101 quoting log number 4322 of 1 June. 

Alternatively, Crimestoppers can be contacted anonymously on 0800 555 111, tell them what you know, not who you are.
