Teenagers held after man found dead at house


Two men have been arrested on suspicion of a murder after a body was found at a house.

The suspects, both aged 18, were detained by West Midlands Police at an address in Dudley at around 9.20pm on Thursday. 

Officers cordoned off a semi-detached house in Cradley Road in the Netherton area on Thursday morning after a 41-year-old man was pronounced dead by paramedics.

A section of nearby Bodmin Road was also sealed off after bank cards were reportedly found nearby.

Detective Inspector Warren Hines, from the West Midlands Police Homicide Team, is leading the murder inquiry and continues to appeal for information.

He said: "We are still piecing together the circumstances of this man's death and members of the local community could play a part in helping us to do that.

"If you saw anything - regardless of how insignificant you think it may be - and have not yet spoken to us, I would ask you to give me a call."

Information can be passed to police via 101 or the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
