His death was initially treated as unexplained until a post-mortem revealed Mr Smith may have suffered an injury.

A Home Office post-mortem examination was carried out on October 24, 2021 and while the cause of death remains inconclusive, unlawful injury cannot be ruled-out.

Detectives launched a murder inquiry and have been working to establish the circumstances surrounding Mr Smith’s death.

A Norfolk Police spokesman said enquiries were "ongoing".

CCTV footage has been released which shows a man carrying a backpack walking in Park Lane, off Earlham Road, on October 5 last year, shortly before 7.40pm.
