POLICE yesterday named a man found dead in a city centre flat on Sunday.

Michael Stephen Broadway had been living at the property in South Bridge Row, St Aldate’s, for “several months”, Thames Valley Police said.

The 33-year-old was found by police shortly after 9.15am on Sunday after officers responded to a “report for the fear of welfare of a man”.

A 55-year-old man arrested on Sunday on suspicion of murder remained in custody as the Oxford Mail went to press last night.

A post-mortem took place on Sunday and police said it proved inconclusive, pending further tests.

Det Ch Insp Gill Wootton said there was no danger to the wider community.

Anyone with information should call police on 101 or the Crimestoppers charity anonymously on 0800 555111.
