Police say they are no longer treating the discovery of a man's body in a King's Lynn garden as suspicious.
A post mortem has revealed the 35-year-old man suffered fatal head injuries consistent with a fall.
An investigation was launched after police were called to the rear garden of the address in Marshall Street, off Railway Road, by a member of the public at 6.55am on Saturday.
The scene was immediately sealed for examination and a full investigation was launched by King's Lynn CID.
A post mortem was carried out yesterday evening at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in King's Lynn by Home Office pathologist Dr Ben Swift.
A spokesman for Norfolk Constabulary said the male was believed to be a 35-year-old Lithuanian national, who has not yet been formally identified. Officers cannot release his identity as they are still in the process of informing his next of kin.
