Detective Inspector Hollands said the body was found in a bedroom of the house.
“I’ve got no further details in relation to his injuries,” he said.

“We’re suspecting the death occurred somewhere between one o’clock this morning and midday today.”
He said there were no persons of interest at this stage and no indication of drugs or alcohol.
