Body of man found in Benfleet

First published in South Essex news by

A YOUNG man was found dead at his home in Benfleet.

Forensic units and police went to the house in Hatley Gardens at about 4.30pm on Monday after reports of a non-suspicious death.

A female neighbour who didn’t want to be named said: “Two police cars and a forensic unit spent all afternoon at the house. We heard that a young man had been found at the house.

“Its really scary to think that this kind of thing is going on just doors down from where you live, its not very nice with it being so close.”

Essex Police confirmed that there had been a non-suspicious death at the home but refused to comment further.

I am sorry but someone has died I am afraid to tell you people do die, this was an unexpected death at a young age so the cauce needs to be investigated, what is scary about that ?

lol I thought exactly the same thing, god forbid that people die all over the world, and I'm sure they can't help where it happens.

My elderly neighbour died in his sleep, and the police were called and remained in the house until the doctor confirmed it was a natural death. Not unusual at all apart from the fact this man was younger. RIP.
