Stockport Times West - - PURE FM -

PO­LICE have ruled out foul play over the death of a man from Stock­port whose body was dis­cov­ered in a bush in Manch­ester city cen­tre.

A pass­ing shop­per found Carl For­shaw, 29, on Miller Street near the CIS build­ing on Satur­day, Novem­ber 22.

De­tec­tives launched an in­ves­ti­ga­tion and a post-mortem was car­ried out which was ‘in­con­clu­sive’.

How­ever, of­fi­cers no longer be­lieve the death to be sus­pi­cious.

It is un­der­stood Mr For­shaw was raised in Hazel Grove be­fore be­ing adopted by a fam­ily in Rhyl in Wales.

He had only been re­leased from Strange­ways prison last Thurs­day, hav­ing served a sen­tence for shoplift­ing. It is un­der­stood Mr For­shaw may have been liv­ing in a hos­tel.

His brother Ryan John­son, from Red­dish, said Mr For­shaw had told his fam­ily he was de­ter­mined to make a fresh start after a trou­bled up­bring­ing. Mr John­son, 20, said: was meant to see him next week. He was try­ing to turn his life around.

spoke to him in let­ters while he was in prison.

“He said he was sick of be­ing in prison and wanted to be a proper cit­i­zen.”
