Mr Strowger said: “He had lived here for several years and I didn't really have much contact with him but I hadn't seen him for two weeks.

“His cat had been acting a bit strange - not going into the house even though the window was open. I wasn't at all surprised when police came out and said he was in there and dead.”

Mr Strowger said the man had not had many visitors in recent weeks and had not been working for some time.

He added that he believed the man had been struggling with a drug addiction.

Inspector Bruce Gent at Suffolk police said the scene had been preserved for examination.

Detectives are today continuing attempts to contact the dead man's next of kin.
