POLICE are renewing appeals for information after the death of a 74-year-old man who was found on a drive at Cranley Green Road in Eye on Saturday morning.

Detectives investigating the case are keen to speak to anyone who was in the area between Friday evening and Saturday morning and are particularly keen to trace anyone who drove along the road towards Occold between 5am and 7.30am on Saturday.

They are appealing for people to come forward regardless of whether they think they saw anything of use, as they may have information that can help the enquiry.

Formal identification of the man who died is still to take place and police will not be officially naming him until this has been carried out.

A 42-year-old man, who was arrested on suspicion of murder, has now been bailed to return to Ipswich Police Station on October 12.

A post mortem examination of the body revealed the man had sustained a head injury and further tests are being carried out to determine how this was sustained. The death is being treated as suspicious.

If you have any information that may help the investigation please call Suffolk Police on 01473 613500.
