Cllr Doug Beattie said: “It is desperately sad to hear the body of a man has been found in a stream at the end of Mourneview Street in Portadown.
“Our thoughts must be with his family at this difficult time. Three men and two women have been arrested from across Portadown and are now helping police with their enquirers.
