The death of a man whose body was found in a central Edmonton apartment has been declared suspicious by police.

Officers were called to the apartment at 117th Avenue and 95th Street around 10:45 a.m Wednesday by someone who found the man’s body.

Police believe the "circumstances" in which the body was found was suspicious. Homicide and forensics officers are investigating.
