Post mortem examinations are underway today (Friday) in an attempt to establish the causes of death of two men whose bodies were found in a St Austell flat on Wednesday.

A 31 year old St Austell man, and a 22-year-old man originally from Plymouth, were found in what police described as “unexplained” circumstances in a flat on Tregonissey Road.

Police say a 22-year-old man was arrested at the scene on suspicion of burglary and was later released on police bail until next Thursday pending further enquiries.

A scene guard remains at the property while a forensic examination and searches are conducted.

DI Marie Ward said: “This investigation is at a very early stage and enquiries continue to establish the circumstances around the deaths.”
