Police are treating the death as "unexplained", the newspapers reports.

The body of Kevin Halligen was found at his mansion in Surrey in England, with sources telling the Daily Mail that the interior of the house was "covered in blood".

Kevin Halligen, the private detective accused of exploiting the hunt for Madeleine McCann, has reportedly been found dead.

The 56-year-old was said to have enjoyed a lavish lifestyle at the expense of the Find Madeleine fund despite acting as if he was a "cloak-and-dagger, James Bond-style spy".

Halligen was employed by Kate and Gerry McCann in 2008 to investigate the high-profile case of their missing daughter, who disappeared from the family's holiday apartment in Portugal on May 3, 2007.

"We were called to an address in Cobbett Hill Road, Normandy, Guildford, on Monday following a report of a man in his 50s having been taken unwell, who subsequently died".

A file will be passed to the coroner's office.

After questions began to be raised about Halligen and his firm Oakley, they cut ties early into the contract after paying him £300,000.

The detective, who cultivated a James Bond-style air of mystique, was later extradited to the U.S. on fraud charges in another case, the Daily Mail reported.
