THE man who was found dead close to the Mandela gardens on Sunday has been named as 38-year-old Dawid Szubert.

He was originally from Poland but was living on Park Road, Barnsley. His family in Poland have been notified.

Mr Szubert was found just outside of Mandela Gardens, at around 3.05pm on Sunday by the Yorkshire Ambulance Service, after receiving a call that he had been taken ill.

He was sadly pronounced dead at the scene, at which point officers were called and an investigation was launched. A post-mortem examination carried out earlier this week revealed that he died as a result of a head injury.

In the last 24-hours a 27-year-old man from Barnsley has been arrested on suspicion of murder. He currently remains in custody where he will be questioned in connection to Mr Szubert’s death.

A 43-year-old man arrested on suspicion of murder remains released under investigation while a 27-year-old man and 32-year-old woman arrested on suspicion of theft have been also been released under investigation.
