(Updated 7:26am 20th August 2013)
Three people have been released without charge, after the death of a man in the street in Biscovey.
Colin Palmer was found collapsed and unconscious on St Mary's Road in the early hours of Saturday morning.
The 57 year old from the St Austell area was rushed to Treliske but doctors could not save him.
Three men aged 21, 19 and 16 were originally arrested on suspicion of murder but have now been released without charge.
An eighteen year old is out on bail until the end of November.
Devon and Cornwall Police have released this statement: "At 2.05am on Saturday 17th August police attended St Marys Road, in Biscovey, Par following a report of a man who had collapsed.
"On arrival ambulance staff were in attendance and treating a man who was unconscious.
"The man who is local and aged 57 years was conveyed by ambulance to Treliske hospital where he was pronounced deceased shortly afterwards.
"Police are appealing for witnesses who were in the vicinity of St Marys Road and Robbins Close between midnight and 2.00am or anyone who has any information regarding this incident to contact them on 101 quoting police reference 0139 170813."
Tony Grey lives round the corner. He said:"Very rare isn't it? You hear of things like this in Plymouth and upwards and you hear of people drowning or jumping off the cliffs or things like that, but they're extremely rare.
"That's quite shocking really because, you know, it's at the end of our road and we don't really want anything like that to happen. You hear so many things but you don't expect it to happen on your doorstep."7:26am 20th August 2013
