Detectives are appealing for witnesses following the unexplained death of a man in Crawley.
Police and paramedics were called to an address in Apex Apartments, Ifield Road, at 12.30pm on Monday (January 9) due to concerns for welfare of a man in his 20s. Sadly, he was discovered deceased at the scene. His next of kin have been informed and are being supported by officers at this time.

“Our enquiries are ongoing and we are urging anyone with information about how the man died, or who may have interacted with him on Sunday (January 8) or the morning of Monday (January 9) to please get in touch. This includes anyone who may have seen or heard any suspicious or unusual activity in the area around that time.”
Anyone with information is asked to report it to police online or by calling 101 quoting Operation Southampton. Alternatively, report information anonymously via the independent charity Crimestoppers online or by calling 0800 555 111.
