Murder probe over Reading man's death

A man who was found dead in a property in Reading by paramedics may have been murdered, police believe.

The man, thought to be in his 30s, was found dead in London Road in the early hours of Sunday.

Police, who initially described his death as "unexplained", said they had now started a murder investigation following a post-mortem examination.

A 36-year-old man from Reading arrested earlier on suspicion of assisting an offender remains in police custody.

Det Ch Insp Simon Steel said: "Although this is very shocking news for the community, I would urge them not to be alarmed."

The man is yet to be formally identified.
