Teenager found dead in Belfast apartment

By Staff Reporter

A teenager was found dead in his bed at a Belfast apartment yesterday.

Police officers sealed off the scene at Avoca Court as they launched a probe into the cause of the young man's death.

Initial reports suggested the dead teenager was found by a relative.

Sinn Fein councillor Steven Corr said: "At this point we can only pray for the young man and for his family.

"I want to offer the family my sincere condolences on their tragic loss."

It is believed the young man worked in the technology industry, carrying out computer and smartphone repairs from his address.

How the teenager died is at this stage unknown.

It is expected that a post-mortem examination will be carried out in the near future.

The Northern Ireland Ambulance Service confirmed last night that police had not asked paramedics to attend the scene of the death.
