Leg find body inquiry: Police say 'no third party' involved
There was "no third party involvement" in the death of a man whose body was found by a dog walker near a Rochdale social club, police have said.
The body was found near Healey Conservative Club in Whitworth after a dog discovered a human leg on Sunday.
A post-mortem examination failed to determine the cause of the man's death.
Lancashire Police said they were "working under the assumption" the man was Heath Nield, a 31-year-old from Bacup, who disappeared in July.
A spokeswoman said Mr Nield's family had been made aware of the examination results and "the matter will now go to an inquest".
