Family in tribute to Donegal man who died after being found lying in Manchester street

By Staff Reporter

A Donegal family has described their son who died in Manchester as "loving and kind".

Dylan Crawford (20) was found unconscious in Spear Street in the early hours of Wednesday and was taken to Manchester Royal Infirmary.

A post-mortem examination was inconclusive as enquiries continue to establish the cause of death of the young man from Killygordon.

Two men who were arrested on suspicion of theft and supplying prohibited drugs continue to be questioned as police issued a CCTV image of a man they want to speak to in connection with the death of Mr Crawford. In a statement issued on Thursday, Mr Crawford's family spoke of their devastation at his passing.

"Our Dylan was a loving, kind and a very trustworthy individual," they said.

"He saw the good in everyone and that was his downfall.

"He loved to travel and would give the world to anyone.

"He was the heart of our family and words can't describe how devastated we are.

"Our home will never be the same without him.

"We love you son, brother, cousin and friend. May you rest in peace darling."

Detective Inspector Rebecca Boyce of Greater Manchester Police has appealed for information to help its investigation and has urged anyone who was around the Spear Street, Back Piccadilly Street and Oldham Street areas between 11.30pm on Tuesday and 12.30am on Wednesday to come forward.
