Murder was eventually ruled out after a post-mortem was carried out and it is believed the man was killed by his dog.

"The injuries the victim suffered were horrific,'' an officer involved in the investigation said.

"At the beginning there was really no way to establish an obvious cause of death.

"But now after further forensic tests at the scene and on the animal we are pretty confident that the dog for whatever reason attacked the man. A full report will go to the coroner."
