Detective Inspector Conor McStravick said: “Police are continuing to investigate the circumstances surrounding the sudden death of a man whose body was discovered in a house in the Derg Villas area of Strabane yesterday morning, Thursday, August 9.

He continued: “At this time, we do not believe that a crime has been committed. As with all sudden deaths, however, police need to establish what exactly has happened when someone has died. We have a duty to the Coroner as well as the family and loved ones to investigate the full circumstances.”

Detective Inspector McStravick continued: “Officers therefore continue to maintain a presence at the address until the investigation is concluded. This will be guided by the findings of the post mortem which will be carried out in due course.”
