POLICE investigating the death of a man on his boat moored at Soldiers Point marina have ruled out electrocution as the cause of death.

Evidence at the crime scene had earlier indicated to police to ‘‘suggest that electricity may have been a contributing factor’’, a police statement said.

However, Port Stephens crime manager Detective Inspector Matt Moroney has confirmed to theherald南京夜网.au that further investigation of the scene had since ruled out the electricity theory.

The death of the man, 55, is also not being treated as suspicious or a result of self-harm.

He had been living on the boat, which was moored at the marina, with his two cats.

A crime scene remains at the marina while forensic officers process the area.

An autopsy should reveal the cause of death later this week.
