Following up on several messages made privately to us today on social media, unfortunately we have received reliable reports that the body of a male, was found earlier today at Greenhall Park, High Blantyre.
Police immediately visited the area after the grim discovery by dog walkers was made earlier this afternoon, Saturday 17th October 2015.
The man’s body, who had passed away was found face down on the trail, left of the bridge at the foot of the steps, on the small track heading towards the back of Crossbow Estate. Police have not confirmed the report officially yet, so it is unknown what circumstances led to his death.
The area is now taped off for investigation. Of course, this is a police matter, so we won’t be speculating and will not post until an official press release can be obtained.
Meantime, we offer our sympathies to the family of the unnamed man and our support to the young ladies who found him. If you happen to know the identity of the individual, please do NOT share here, respecting the family in their time of grief.
