Po­lice in­ves­ti­gat­ing ‘un­ex­plained’ death

Gatton Star - - NEWS -

DE­TEC­TIVES are await­ing the re­sults of a post­mortem as part of on­go­ing in­ves­ti­ga­tions into a man’s death in Gat­ton at the week­end.

The Gat­ton man, 38, was found un­con­scious at a South St home about 7.45pm Fri­day and died a short time later.

Dar­ling Downs De­tec­tive In­spec­tor Lew Stro­hfeldt said the man’s death was be­ing treated as “un­ex­plained” un­til the re­sults of the post­mortem, which are ex­pected this week.

Insp Stro­hfeldt said ini­tial in­ves­ti­ga­tions in­di­cated the man had been in­volved in a phys­i­cal al­ter­ca­tion ear­lier Fri­day morn­ing.

He was un­able to say if there was a link be­tween the man’s death and the fight, but con­firmed the man had sought med­i­cal treat­ment at a lo­cal hospi­tal the day he died.

“We’ve got in­for­ma­tion he may have been in­volved in an al­ter­ca­tion but at this point it is an un­ex­plained death,” Insp Stro­hfeldt said.

“He’s been to the Gat­ton Hospi­tal in re­la­tion to an is­sue he had, and he had been re­leased.

“We are unsure what has caused his death at this point.”

Insp Stro­hfeldt said no weapons were found at the home.

In­ves­ti­ga­tions are con­tin­u­ing.
