A man who had his penis cut off in a grisly incident in 2014 has been discovered dead at his home.
Police officials had launched a major investigation in March 2014 when Kelvin Hewitt was found staggering around the A66 searching for his missing organ.
According to Metro UK, sections of the A66 in South Bank, Middlesbrough, were closed off while officers attempted to find his severed penis.
Hewitt, popularly known as Kelly, who went into coma was rushed to James Cook Hospital following the incident.
Although he survived the trauma of the incident, Hewitt was on Thursday, May 7, 2015 discovered dead in his house located at King George’s Terrace, South Bank.
The lifeless remains of the poor 40-year-old man was discovered around 8.45am after which some officers from Cleveland Police were called to the scene.
The force confirmed the death of a man adding that at present there was nothing to indicate the death was suspicious.
The result of the post-mortem is yet to be released.
Meanwhile, it was learnt that the police arrested a 22-year-old man following the penis attack although he was later released without charge while the investigation was subsequently closed.
