By Adam Evans

A man has been found dead inside a house in Strabane.

The PSNI has been guarding the scene since his body was discovered in the Derg Villas area of the town yesterday.

Detectives don't think a crime has been committed but they are investigating for the coroner.

PSNI Detective Inspector, Conor McStravick said: “Police are continuing to investigate the circumstances surrounding the sudden death of a man whose body was discovered in a house in the Derg Villas area of Strabane yesterday morning, Thursday 9 August.

"At this time, we do not believe that a crime has been committed.

"As with all sudden deaths, however, police need to establish what exactly has happened when someone has died. 

"We have a duty to the Coroner as well as the family and loved ones to investigate the full circumstances. 

"Officers therefore continue to maintain a presence at the address until the investigation is concluded. 

"This will be guided by the findings of the post mortem which will be carried out in due course."
