Tragedy as wheelchair-bound man, 63, dies in ‘suspicious circumstances’ inside his home – as woman, 41 and man 43, are arrested at the scene

Two people have been arrested after a man was found dead in his home.

Emergency services were called to a home in Nathan Court in Morphett Vale in Adelaide’s south just after 9am on Saturday to check on the welfare of the occupant.

Police located a man, 63, deceased inside his home under what South Australian Police described as ‘suspicious circumstances’.

Detectives arrested a Morphett Vale woman, 41, at the scene.

A man, 43, was arrested a short time later at his home in the nearby suburb of Christie Downs.

The pair are expected to be charged later on Saturday.

Police don’t believe it was a random incident.

Superintendent Yvette Clark said the three people knew each other but police are yet to determine the relationship between them.

‘It appears to be a targeted issue,’ she told reporters.

‘We are in the early stages of talking to family members and friends. We don’t believe there’s any further danger to any members of the public and we will continue to investigate and proceed with the matter from there.’

The cause of the man’s death is yet to be determined, which will be investigated by pathologists.
