Colchester: Dog walker finds body in church porch
A MAN’S body was discovered in a church porch in Essex this morning.
A man in his fifties was found at St John’s Church in St John’s Close, Colchester, at 7.30am by a dog walker.
Church administrator Anita Newbery said: “The police and ambulance were here when I arrived at 8am this morning.
“From what I understand a lady was walking her dog and saw a person in the porch on the old side of the church by the Ipswich Road sign.
“She didn’t want to approach him and spoke to a builder on site who determined the man was not alive.”
The man has not yet been named and his death is not being treated as suspicious.
