The bodies of two men were found in different houses in Galashiels over the course of four days.
Borders police are treating the death of 33-year-old Galashiels man David Connolly as “unexplained but not suspicious”.
Mr Connolly’s body was discovered in a property in the town’s Winston Place on Friday, December 1.
A Police Scotland spokesperson said: “Police in the Borders are investigating after the body of a 33-year-old man was discovered within an address in the Winston Place area of Galashiels on Friday, December 1.
“The death is being treated as unexplained, but not suspicious, and a report has been submitted to the Procurator Fiscal.”
Another man, as yet unnamed, was found in a property in the town’s Kirkbrae on Monday.
A Police Scotland spokeswoman said: “Police were called to an address in Kirkbrae in Galashiels on the evening of Monday, December 4, after concerns were raised for the welfare of a man within. Officers gained entry and found a man in his 60s deceased.
“The death is being treated as unexplained, but is not being treated as suspicious at this time, and a report will be sent to the Procurator Fiscal.”
Both deaths are understood to be drugs-related, but not linked to the drugs addicts who were admitted to the Borders General Hospital at the weekend after having taken what was purported to be heroin laced with fentanyl.
