Police investigate as man found dead on Sunshine Coast

THE Daily's photographer John McCutcheon was at the Marcus Beach scene where a man was found dead this morning.

He said two policemen were talking to a man when he pulled up at the Mahogany Dr address. 

"I drove into Mahogany and pulled up at the address, and there was an ambulance parked directly in front of the house and a police van parked not far away," he said.

"Two policemen were talking to somebody and when I pulled up they saw me....they all walked inside."

No neighbours were on the street, he said. 

"It was very calm, nothing untoward really," he said.

Police have not yet confirmed whether the death was suspicious or released the deceased man's name.
