Rowhedge: Mystery Man Dies After Being Found Unconcious

Police still haven't identified a man who died after being found uncnoucious in a graveyard in north-east Essex.

Church-goers and dog walkers spotted the unconscious man next to The Church of St Lawrence on Church Hill in Rowhedge at 9am on Sunday, May 5.

Officers arrived to find paramedics treating him.

He was then taken to Colchester General Hospital.

He sadly died a short time after arrival.

An area of Church Hill was cordoned off for four hours while house-to-house enquiries were carried out and CCTV examined.

Later on Sunday, he was reported missing by his family who lived locally and it has been established that he was a 73-year-old who lived in the village.

The death is not being treated as suspicious and a file will be prepared for HM Coroner.
