A £300,000 detached house in a Cambridgeshire village remains sealed off today as detectives probe a suspected murder.
Police remain at the scene and forensic officers continue their work.
A man arrested yesterday (Thursday) on suspicion of murder remains in custody at Thorpe Wood police station in Peterborough.
Police say a 64-year-old man from March was arrested at the house in Honeysuckle Close, Wimblington, following the death of a second man at the property.
The identity of the dead man is being withheld by Cambridgeshire police until formal identification has been made.
A police spokesman said: “The force control room was called by the ambulance service at about 12.10pm following the discovery of a man with injuries.
“He was declared dead shortly afterwards and police are treating his death as suspicious.”
