A police spokesman said: "At 9.30am we were informed of a sudden death in St Andrew's Parade in Weston-super-Mare.
"An investigation to establish the circumstances of the death has begun and at this stage we are keeping an open mind. Our enquiries have not found any link to the murder and at this stage we believe it is an unconnected event.
"The area has been cordoned off and we are asking for anyone with information about the incident to contact police on 101."
Inquiries into the incident are continuing.
A 17-year-old man, who cannot be named for legal reasons, has appeared in court charged with the murder of Mr Roberts.
Mr Roberts was found with serious injuries early on Saturday morning. The father-of-two was taken to hospital but died the following day.
