The police are investigating exactly how the man died. The home is closed down as a crime scene.

“The criminal investigation department is on site and forensic investigators also conducted investigations in the home”, the police said in a statement. “The man was found under suspicious circumstances, which is why the emergency service decided to start an investigation.
