(Updated 9:56am 16th July 2014)
A body has been found in Bodmin, not far from the town's police station.
Police call it "unexplained" and have cordoned off the area.
Forensic teams are looking for clues nearby.
Officers got a call from a dog walker to say a body had been discovered in fields off Priory Road yesterday evening, just before 6pm.
The area has now been taped off and locals say a helicopter has been buzzing overhead.
It is adjacent to a new development of homes being put up on Gilbert Road.
Now we are waiting for the results of a postmortem to see if that can help get answers.
A spokesperson for Devon and Cornwall Police said: "Police are investigating the death of a man after his body was discovered in Bodmin.
"A dog walker discovered the body in the field at the back of Gilbert Road shortly before 5.55pm on Tuesday 15 July.
"The body of a man, believed to be in his late 40s, has not been formally identified yet but his next of kin has been informed.
"The death is currently being treated as unexplained pending results of a forensic post mortem which will be carried out in due course.
"A cordon was set up around fields surrounding the building site of Canyke Fields to allow forensic officers to examine the scene."
Jane from Launceston is working nearby. She said: "It's an absolute shock. I got a phone call last night from one of my guys who was painting. He said, 'Jane you won't believe it. There's coppers about here there and everywhere.'
"Police were flying over - and the rumour was there was a body somewhere.
"It's very rural, very quiet. Absolutely lovely people - everybody helps everybody. It's just lovely - a lovely place. It is a shock and, hopefully, it's nothing sinister."
