Appeal for witnesses following mans death in Tamworth

Wednesday, 20th January 2021

DETECTIVES are investigating the circumstances around a man’s death in Tamworth early yesterday morning.

Police were called to a suspicious incident in Crossfell, Stonydelph, shortly before 0530GMT on Tuesday morning (January 19).

A 31-year-old man, who has not been named was taken to hospital but was sadly pronounced dead a short time later. His family have since been informed.

Detectives say the man was found by officers not wearing a top and are urging anyone who may have seen him in the area prior to emergency services being called to call the force.
