We have launched a murder investigation following the death of a man in Lawrence Weston, shortly before midnight on Friday.
We were called to a flat fire in Oakhanger Drive at about 11.40pm on 29 September.
The body of man was found in the property.
A post mortem held yesterday concluded that the man – believed to be in his 40s – had died from multiple blows to the head.
A man in his 30s has been arrested on suspicion of murder and remains in police custody.
The road was re-opened last night and we had patrols in the area to provide reassurance and also receive information.
Our enquiries into the incident are continuing. Anyone who has information about the fire last
night which they think might assist our investigation, is asked to call us quoting 5217223044
