Man found dead in Winston Hills frontyard

A man aged in his early 50s was found dead on the front lawn of person’s property in Winston Hills on Thursday.

The discovery was made by a passing motorist who found the body on Churchill Drive at 6am and reported to emergency services.

Police said the man had been dead for several hours before he was found.

A post mortem is being prepared for the coroner and police have ruled out any suspicious behaviour.

Crime manager Frank Gilroy said the man may have collapsed due to a heart attack.

‘‘At this stage the body is subject to a post mortem,’’ Detective Inspector Gilroy said.

‘‘I can’t rule out the possibility alcohol or drugs may be involved.’’
