Police believe the two men are connected and may be linked to a burglary at a nearby business on Port Sorell Road where a white Hyundai Getz was allegedly stolen.

Detective Acting Inspector Tony Stewart said police investigate all sudden deaths, with forensics teams scouring the scene to determine how the man died.

“Initial investigations suggest the man’s death is not believed to have been caused by a vehicle crash,” Det Insp Stewart said.

Police want to speak to anyone who saw a man in the Wesley Vale or Devonport Airport area or may have given a man a lift.
