As revealed in yesterday's Evening Star, police were called to a semi-detached house in Clopton Gardens in Hadleigh at 9.45pm on Sunday where they found Simon Mitchell, who was believed to have lived with his father, with a serious head injury and he later died at Ipswich Hospital.
Neighbour, Henry Wilcox said: “It is a shock to wake up in the morning and hear about it. When I saw the police presence I knew it was pretty serious
“It is such a friendly place to live. Lots of the people who live here come when they get married and have children and the children grow up nearby too.
“It is terrible and something that you do not expect.”
Cecil is thought to be a former ambulance technician based at Stowmarket. He was one of the first trial community responders, operating from his Hadleigh home.
