UPDATE: Man named by police in murder probe
A MAN found dead in a Burnley alleyway has been named by police.
The body of Aaron Taylorson, 27, was found in Albion Terrace, off Albion Street, Burnley on Tuesday, shortly after 9am.
A post-mortem examination was carried out today but failed to uncover a cause of death.
Further toxicology tests have now been ordered by a pathologist to find out how he died.
Mr Taylorson is believed to have lived in Berry Street, Burnley, for two years. He was orginally from Preston.
His family are now being supported by a specially trained family liasion officer.
A second man found at the scene, who was taken to the Royal Blackburn Hospital for treatment, was arrested on suspicion of murder.
Officers said the 52-year-old, from Burnley, has now been released from hospital.
He has been released on police bail and will have to return to Burnley Police Station on August 2, at 11am.
Residents in Albion Terrace said two men had been sitting at the end of then alleyway, amongst bushes and trees, drinking cans of lager.
It is thought they had been there for several hours before the discovery of the body, after neighbours reported hearing men talking and a dog barking around 6am yesterday. Police and paramedics were called shortly after 9am.
Det Supt Paul Withers, from Lancashire Police’s Major Incident Team, who is leading the investigation, said: “A Home Office post-mortem examination has proved inconclusive and we are now waiting on the results of toxicology to find out how this man died.
“The second man who we have had in custody has now also been released on part four bail.”
