A 53-year-old man has also been arrested on suspicion of assisting an offender.

All three remain in police custody as investigations continue.

Detective Chief Inspector Clare Dean, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “We are still at the early stages of our investigation, but it is now clear that this man died as a result of multiple stab wounds.

“Three people are now in custody as a team of detectives work to understand what happened to him and who was responsible for his death.

“We believe this man may have been dead for some time before his body was found, and would like to speak to anyone who saw or heard anything suspicious in this area towards the end of May.

“As our investigations continue over the coming days, our thoughts will remain with this man’s family at what we know will be an extremely difficult time.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact the incident room, you can call 101, quoting incident 390 of 7 June, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
