Police are carrying out enquiries into the circumstances of a man found dead in Bournemouth.
An ambulance was called to Shelbourne Road at 3.13pm on Friday 14th January 2022. A man in his 50s was pronounced dead at the scene. His next of kin has been informed.
Initial enquiries indicated the cause was not believed to be suspicious. However, detectives have subsequently carried out further investigative work that indicates suspicious circumstances linked to the man’s death, including the use of his bank cards after he sadly died.

“I am particularly keen to hear from anyone who may have witnessed any suspicious activity in the area of the alleyway, which runs alongside the A338 Wessex Way between Shelbourne Road and Malmesbury Park Road, on the afternoon of Friday 14th January.”
