Police have launched a murder investigation after the body of a man was found inside a house in Glasgow.
William Duncan was discovered dead within a property on Glenalmond Street at around 11am on Thursday after officers were called to a report of a concern for a person.
The 55-year-old’s death is now being treated as murder following a post-mortem.
Detective chief inspector Frank Travers, of Police Scotland’s Major Investigations Team, said: “Our thoughts go out to the family and friends of Mr Duncan and we are working to establish the full circumstances surrounding his death.
“Our investigation will focus on establishing a timeframe of William’s movements prior to him being found and I would urge anyone with information no matter how insignificant you think that may be to come forward and get in contact with police.
“Perhaps you have seen him over the past few weeks or noticed someone acting suspiciously around his home.
“We are also keen to speak to any friends or acquaintances of Mr Duncan who have spoken to him recently.
“It is important that we know as much as possible about his life and activities, as this information could help us find the person responsible for his death”
“I would like to reassure members of the public that there will be increased patrols as well as significant door-to-door enquiries in the local area and our dedicated officers are doing everything they can to provide answers to William’s family.
“I would also ask anyone with possible CCTV or dashcam footage that may assist with our enquiries to come forward and speak to officers.”
