The investigation into the incident is now a homicide enquiry.
Detective Inspector Julie Gowen, who's leading the investigation, said:
“I want to express our condolences to the man’s family at this incredibly difficult time. “Our investigation into this incident is progressing well but still need anyone who we’ve not spoken to who saw anything, or has any CCTV, dash cam or doorbell footage, or any other information to come forward.”
