Police and paramedics were called to an address in Butterwick Walk, Corby, at about 11.20am yesterday (Wednesday, August 22), following concerns for the welfare of a 35-year old man. Sadly, the man, Thomas Gravestock (pictured), was found dead at the scene.

Two men aged 24 and 61 have been arrested in connection with the incident and detectives are now appealing for the public’s help in piecing together the events that took place before Thomas’ death.

Senior Investigating Officer, Detective Chief Inspector Ally White, said: “We’re determined to get justice for Thomas and I am appealing to anyone who may have seen him between 8am on Tuesday, August 21, and 11.20am on Wednesday, August 22, to get in touch, especially if you saw him around the Lincoln Way area.
