An autopsy will determine the exact cause of death

Police are on the scene where a decomposing body was found at Crown Trace, Enterprise.

According to a police report, at about 11 am, police officers were notified that a body was found in a drain at the back of a property that houses an ice cream shop.

Whilst police say they are not sure how the man died, they got information from neighbours that the man is known to suffer from epileptic attacks.

Police believe the man suffered a seizure while in the backyard and may have fallen into a water-filled drain.

His identity has not been released to the media

The body was removed to the Forensic Science Centre where an autopsy is expected to be conducted to determine the actual cause of death.
