Police Investigating Death Inside Dover Home, Caller Evaluated At Hospital

The Dover Police Department’s Criminal Investigations Unit is conducting a death investigation after a 50-year-old male was found deceased inside a home on North Governors Avenue, according to M/Cpl. Mark Hoffman, Public Information Officer.

Hoffman said officers responded to the residence for a psychiatric incident after a subject called the police department. When they contacted the caller inside of the residence, officers located the body of the deceased man. The caller was taken to a nearby hospital for an evaluation.

No obvious cause of death was able to be determined at the scene and an autopsy is scheduled in the near future. Names of both the caller and the deceased male are being withheld pending further investigation and next of kin notifications.

The investigation is ongoing and anyone with information is asked to contact the Dover Police Department at (302)736-7130. Callers may remain anonymous.
