Police are treating the death of a 31-year-old man as suspicious, it has been confirmed.

Detectives from the PSNI's serious crime branch have begun an investigation after the man was found at a flat in the St Mary's Gardens area of west Belfast on Saturday.

Detective chief inspector Justyn Galloway said the post mortem results had raised questions about the circumstances surrounding the man's death.

He said: "The results have indicated that this man may have died in suspicious circumstances.

"Accordingly, my officers are now carrying out a full investigation into the circumstances surrounding the death and I am seeking the assistance of the public to help us with our inquiries.

"I would ask anyone who was in the St Mary's Gardens area between 1am and lunchtime on Saturday, September 13 and who may have noticed any suspicious activity or anyone who has any information which may assist us with our investigation to contact the major investigation team."
