Police made the discovery when officers called at the Moyraverty Court property in Craigavon during the afternoon.

The exact cause of the man's death will not be known until a post mortem examination has been carried out.

Two people - a 27-year-old man and a 23-year-old woman - have been arrested.

They remain in custody at Lurgan PSNI Station and are being questioned by detectives from Serious Crime Branch.

Detectives are appealing to anyone who either heard or saw a disturbance, or any suspicious activity, in the area between Wednesday and Saturday to contact them.
