The death is currently being treated as unexplained.
Mr Mullan, 23, was last seen getting out of a taxi at Commandery petrol station in the Sidbury, Worcester at 3am on Christmas morning.

Coventry-based Severn Trent Water says it wants to reassure customers that it is ready to deal with the cold and snow.
August's rain and storms led to four times as many calls to the company. December's weather is much colder, with snow, rain and wind combining for a chilly few days ahead.
"When cold weather arrives and the temperatures drop we often see more leaks and burst water pipes. We’re a twenty-four-seven business and we work all day and all night.
Many of our customers may not realise that Severn Trent Water is only responsible for the water mains and service pipes in the public highway. Anything inside the property boundary is the responsibility of the homeowner.
“Colder weather can wreak havoc on household water pipes. When water freezes it expands, putting more pressure on pipes and joints, often causing pipes to split or joints to pull apart. Taking steps now to make sure the pipework leading to your home and within your property is protected can help avoid problems with frozen pipes once the temperatures drop.
Business Secretary Vince Cable has vowed to step in to help save nearly 3,000 City Link jobs after the company announced it had gone into administration.
The Liberal Democrat minister said he was keeping abreast of the situation and would meet union officials in the New Year to see if anything could be done.
However the future for City Link, one of the biggest parcel delivery firms in the UK, looks doubtful after John Lewis, one of its major customers, said it had transferred its business to another courier.
All City Link delivery services have now been suspended but customers can collect their own parcels from one of the many depots across the country.
A City Link worker who only found out his job was at risk on Christmas Day said he thought the firm was doing well.
The first Dean Bradshaw, like many others, heard of it was on the news.He said: "I wasn't sure if I was hearing right. I thought it can't be true.
"We're doing quite well, we've invested a lot into the company with new machinery and things like that. So I didn't think it was at all possible."
RMT Union general secretary Mick Cash called the timing of the announcement "disgusting".
