Police say the unexplained death of a man in Manawatu at the weekend is not suspicious.

Richard Francis Baxter Mclean, formally of Marton, was staying at a house on Bainesse Road, near Rongotea, and was found dead by the home owner at around 8.30am on Saturday.

A post mortem examination was being carried out, but police have ruled out any foul play in Mclean's death.

"The cause of death still remains unexplained, however, there are no suspicious circumstances surrounding Mr Mclean's death and Police are not looking for anyone in relation to his death," Detective Senior Sergeant Marc Hercock said.

The death will be referred to the coroner.
