Police probe after man found dead in garage

Detectives are treating the death of a 32-year-old man found in a garage in Co Tyrone as suspicious.

The man's body was discovered in a garage on the Moor Road in Coalisland on Thursday lunchtime.

A post-mortem examination is to be conducted to determine the cause of death.

Police have released few details about the victim but it is understood he has links to eastern Europe.

PSNI Detective Chief Inspector Lee McNevison, who is leading the inquiry, said: "If anyone saw anything unusual in the Moor Road area in recent days, we would like them to contact detectives in Dungannon by calling the non-emergency number 101."

SDLP Mid Ulster MLA Patsy McGlone said there had been a number of attacks in the Coalisland area in recent days.

On Wednesday a man was shot in the leg, he said.

Mr McGlone said: "Violent attacks are absolutely abhorrent, regardless of who they're aimed at.

"It would be inappropriate to speculate on motives or to draw links at this early stage but I will remain in contact with local police to ensure we do all we can to preserve calm in the community at this difficult time.

"There's a real sense of worry in the community at the minute."
