Police investigating the death of a man in Co Armagh have arrested a 24-year-old man.

Marcell Seeley, 34, was found dead in a flat at Lurgan’s Dingwell Park on Tuesday afternoon.

It is understood his body lay undiscovered for a number of days.

A large police cordon was still in place at the Housing Executive block in the Taghnevan estate on Wednesday while forensic officers in white boiler suits combed the area for clues.

Much of their detailed examinations focused on a ground floor flat in the complex.

Detectives carrying clipboards could also be seen carrying out house-to-house inquiries.

A post-mortem examination was due to be carried out to determine the exact cause of death.

On Tuesday Detective Chief Inspector Eamonn Corrigan, who is leading the inquiry, appealed for information.
