Leeds Man's Death No Longer "Murder"
The death of a man found with serious head injuries in Leeds on Monday night is no longer being treated as murder.
27 year old Nicolai Brown was found by officers in Back Moorfield Terrace, Armley, after police were called at 9.21pm to reports of a man in distress in the street in neighbouring Moorfield Avenue.
A post mortem examination has now shown he died as a result of a serious skull fracture consistent with a fall.
The 43-year-old man who was arrested in connection with the incident has been released without charge.
Detective Superintendent Nick Wallen, of West Yorkshire Police Homicide and Major Enquiry Team, said:
"The initial circumstances surrounding Mr Brown’s death were very suspicious and it was entirely appropriate that we treated it as a murder investigation.
"As a result of comprehensive enquiries into his movements in the time leading up to his death and the results of a full forensic post mortem examination we are now satisfied that his death is not suspicious. A file is being prepared for the Coroner so that an inquest can be held.
"Our sympathies are very much with Mr Brown’s family who have been informed of our findings."
