Emergency services were called to Nelson Street at just before 08:30 yesterday morning (Friday). Paramedics from the Isle of Wight Ambulance Service responded alongside Police, but there was nothing that could be done to save the male who was pronounced dead at the scene.
Crime scene investigators from Hampshire Constabulary were called in, as were detectives from Newport CID as first reported by Island Echo.
A forensics tent was erected at the entrance to a property – just off the pavement – as initial investigations were carried out to determine the circumstances of the sudden death.
Police have today confirmed that the death of the man in his 30s is not being treated as suspicious.
The scene was cleared by 15:00 yesterday afternoon.
A spokesperson for Hampshire Constabulary has said:
“We were called at 08.29 after the body of a 32-year-old man was found in Nelson Street, Ryde.
“Officers attended and the death is not being treated as suspicious.
“His next of kin have been informed and are being supported.
“A file will be prepared for the coroner”.
