A MAN has been arrested on suspicion of murder after another man was found dead at a house in Olton.

The 26-year-old man was found by a relative just before 6.30pm at his home in Scott Road on June 7

He had significant head injuries and sadly nothing could be done to save him.

The police investigation has resulted in the arrest on June 11 of a 34-year-old man from an address in Sandwell.

Detective Inspector Jim Mahon, from our homicide team, said: “My thoughts remain with the family and friends of the man who sadly lost his life. They have been fully updated with this latest development.

“Our investigation continues and I’d urge anyone who may have information, but not yet contacted us to get in touch.”

West Midlands Police say the man has been bailed pending further investigation.

Anyone with information should contact police online or by calling 101 and quoting log number 3778 of June 7.
