Emergency services rushed to Kilburn Drive in Shevington after reports that a body had been found at around 7pm on Thursday.
It was confirmed that the person had died and a police investigation was immediately launched.
But it is understood that “potentially hazardous substances” found with the body – thought to be white powder – have delayed its removal from the area, until it can be deemed safe to do so.
Officers have not yet established if the person who died was a man or a woman and are working to identify them.
House-to-house inquiries are being carried out in the surrounding area and police officers are checking CCTV footage as part of their investigation.
