Detectives are continuing to investigate the suspicious death of a man who was found slumped on a pavement in Kings Heath on Friday night.
The 24-year-old was found collapsed in the High Street at about 11pm and was taken to hospital with head injuries where he was pronounced dead on arrival.
Police closed a 200-metre stretch of the High Street from Addison Road to Heathfield Road until 3.30pm on Sunday while they carried out their investigation.
It is thought the victim had been drinking in the Pear Tree pub before stumbling outside.
An initial post-mortem examination showed that the man died as a result of head injuries,
Det Insp Richard Mayhew said: “At this stage it is too early to reach any conclusions as to how this man met his death, although we do now know that he had suffered head injuries.
“Extensive inquiries are taking place at the scene, and in the surrounding area, as we seek to find people who could have seen the man before he was found collapsed.
“We appreciate the closure of High Street has caused a great deal of inconvenience and upheaval to local businesses and residents, and we thank them for their co-operation,” he added.
The front of the Hare and Hounds pub was sealed off immediately after the injured man was found, but it was re-opened on Saturday morning.
The nearby Pear Tree pub was also sealed off for most of Saturday.
