A man whose body is believed to be that of missing Suffolk teenager Miller Redpath did not die in suspicious circumstances, police have said.

The body was found in the overgrown garden of the 18-year-old's home in Wenhaston last week.

Suffolk Police said it had not yet formally identified the man, but early indications showed it was Mr Redpath.

Officers have now ended their inquiries at the property. A cause of death has not yet been established.

The 18-year-old was reported missing by his mother Anastasia Miller, who last saw him on 13 August at their house.

Due to concerns over his well-being, a formal missing person inquiry was launched earlier this month. The body was discovered nine days later.

A Suffolk Police spokesman said: "Specialist trained officers continue to support Miller's mother and a policing presence will remain in the area over the coming days to offer reassurance to the local community."

The force has referred itself to the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) because of previous visits to the home.

A spokesman said officers first went to Mr Redpath's home in August following a "report of a crime".

They then visited at the beginning of October and a "search of the property was carried out", the spokesman said.
