Police have this afternoon (Sunday) concluded their inquiries at a property in Wenhaston, near Halesworth, where a body was discovered earlier this week.
At about 1.10pm last Thursday, an officer attended the home address of missing teenager Miller Redpath as part of inquiries into his disappearance. It was while the premises was searched that a body was found in an overgrown rear garden.
The body was removed from the property and a Home Office post mortem examination was held on Friday, which concluded that the cause of death was unascertained.
A police spokesman said: “Officers have not yet been able to identify the deceased and further tests are required, however early indications suggest that it is the body of 18-year-old Miller Redpath. The death is not being treated as suspicious at this time.
“Specialist trained officers continue to support Miller’s mother and a policing presence will remain in the area over the coming days to offer reassurance to the local community.”
As a matter of course, the case has been referred to the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) – a mandatory requirement if there is a death or serious injury following direct or indirect police contact.
