Brandon: Police Checks Over Unexplained Death
Police carried out anniversary checks in Brandon, on Friday 11 October, as part of their enquiries, looking into the circumstances surrounding the sudden death of a 73 year old man from the town.
The ambulance service was called to an address in Manor House Close in Brandon at approximately 11am (Wednesday 2 October) with a report that a 73 year old man, Peter Shea had collapsed.
Mr Shea was sadly pronounced deceased at the scene.
A post mortem examination carried out on Friday 4 October was inconclusive and further tests are required before the cause of death can be ascertained. It is thought that this may take a number of weeks.
Mr Shea’s death at this stage is being treated as unexplained and enquiries are on-going.
As part of their continuing enquiries police are looking into the circumstances surrounding an incident of affray which Mr Shea was involved in at around 5.30pm on Friday 27 September in the Market Square (near to Mr G’s), Brandon.
At the time, Mr Shea was taken to West Suffolk Hospital and treated for a fractured shoulder.
Although a number of witnesses to this incident have been spoken to, police carried anniversary checks in this location on Friday 11 October, two weeks after the affray incident between Mr Shea and another male.
Around 140 people were spoken to and officers will now look at this information to see if it can assist with their enquiries.
If you were in the area of the Market Square in Brandon between 5pm and 6pm on Friday 27 September and saw an incident between two men, one on a mobility scooter, and you have not yet been spoken to by police you are asked to call in.
Calls should be made to Suffolk Police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
