Murder probe launched after disabled man found dead in Townhead flat in Glasgow

A murder probe has been launched after a disabled 33-year-old man was found dead in a flat in the Townhead area of Glasgow.

Tomasz Lipiec was discovered in the property in Dobbies Loan Place at  around 6.45pm on Monday.

Detective Inspector Peter Crombie, of the Major Investigation Team, said: “Officers are carrying out extensive enquiries, including speaking to neighbours and checking CCTV to try and establish the circumstances surrounding his death.

“In particular, we are trying to piece together Tomasz’s movements after he was seen by a neighbour on Friday, 4 September.

“Enquiries suggest he may have visited Glasgow city centre on that Friday evening and he would be recognisable as he uses a wheelchair to get about.

“Dobbies Loan Place is residential area with numerous flats, so we are keen to hear from anyone who was in the area between Friday 4 and Monday 7 September, 2020, and may have seen something suspicious.
