The death of a man whose body was found behind a house in South Yorkshire is not being treated as suspicious, police have said.
Officers were called to a property on Hollowgate, near Rotherham town centre, at around 7.30am last Thursday, and discovered the body of a man believed to be in his 50s.
A post-mortem examination concluded the man died from ‘significant chest and abdominal injuries’ and that he had also suffered a head injury.
But a spokesperson for South Yorkshire Police said: “Following further enquiries carried out today, including additional examinations of the area where the body was discovered, police believe that no one else was involved in the man’s death.”
The body was found behind a large semi-detached property on Hollowgate, where it is believed the man lived. A file is now being prepared for the coroner.
