Investigation launched after man found dead

West Midlands Police have launched an investigation after a man was found dead inside a house in Walsall this morning (Mon 24 May).

Officers gained entry to the address in Broad Lane, Bloxwich, at 10.15am following concerns raised by neighbours for his welfare.

They found a man aged 51 collapsed. Sadly there was nothing that could be done to save him and he was pronounced dead at the scene.
