INVESTIGATIONS into the death of a man found hanging in a remote wood on the Felixstowe peninsula have found there were no suspicious circumstances.
Police have said they will not be naming the 40-year-old man, whose body was found in a copse next to the A14, as it is not their policy to do so.
"We have completed our investigations into the man's death and there are no suspicious circumstances involved," said a police spokeswoman.
"It is not our policy to release the name of the person in such circumstances as it is no longer a police matter."

The case is now in the hands of the coroner, who is expected to open an inquest in the next few days.
The man – who is understood to be from south Ipswich – was found by a woman taking an early morning walk in the wooded area just off the busy A14 near Trimley St Martin on Friday.

After making the gruesome find at around 6.40am, the horrified woman drove to Felixstowe police station to report what she had seen and officers were immediately dispatched to the scene, near to the Bucklesham turn-off.
The coroner will commission a post mortem to identify the cause of death. The next stage will be the opening of the inquest to allow the body to be released to the man's family so that they can hold a funeral.
A full inquest would then be held later, once the full details and circumstances surrounding the man's death are known.
It is understood the man's next of kin have been informed.
The wood, opposite Morston Hall, is a remote place.
Hidden within the site is a derelict red-brick building which nearly 20 years ago Suffolk Coastal council earmarked as its emergency headquarters in a nuclear attack, but the plan came to nothing.
There were also plans put forward in the 1980s to use land behind the wood as a shooting range for a rifle club.
