DETECTIVES investigating the death of Milton Man John Connelly still don't know how he died - and believe he may have been involved in an incident before his death. 

The 28-year-old was recovered from the water at Spiers Wharf on Monday, July 22 - but officers investigating his death believe he may have been involved in some sort of incident which resulted in him being injured.

The details of which have not been revealed but the force said the injuries were to his head and body - and now their investigation focuses on what happened to him in an underpass in the city centre area. 

Evening Times:

Officers have therefore now pieced together the Glasgow man's last movements in a bid to find witnesses who can help with their investigation. Using CCTV they have focused on a timeframe from 10pm to 10.20pm on the night he was last seen alive. 

The force said John was seen socialising in the city centre on July 15. He was then seen walking in Buchanan Street around 10pm, walking past the Bus Station and Buchanan Galleries.

He is also seen walking on Sauchiehall Street and West Nile Street.

Around 10.10pm, John stops outside a property in Renfrew Street before walking off where he is seen again in Dundasvale Court.

Officers have established that John was in the underpass at Garscube Road leading to Speirs Wharf in the Cowcaddens area around 10.20pm where he was seen on CCTV.

Officers believe he has potentially been involved in an incident at this location where he sustained injuries to his head and body.

At that time, John was wearing a black Adidas hooded top, with white stripes down the sleeves, black jogging trousers and royal blue coloured Nike trainers.

Detective Inspector John Morrison said: “It’s important we establish exactly what happened to John before his death. He was socialising in the city centre between the hours of 8pm and 10pm.

"We know that he was in the underpass at Garscube Road and we believe this is where the incident occurred resulting in him being injured.

"I am appealing to anyone who saw John that night to contact us. You may not realise that what you saw or know is significant but let us be the judge of that. Your information could be vital in helping us piece together exactly what happened to John.

He added: “This area of Garscube Road at Speirs Wharf is popular with the community, it is used by runners, dog walkers and skateboarders and I’m appealing to anyone who uses this route to think back and consider if they saw anything.”
