MYSTERY still surrounds the death of a Carnoustie man as police continue their enquiries into what happened to him.

It has been almost three weeks since 59 year-old Tony English was discovered dead at a property in Kinloch Street by the emergency services.

Police are treating his death as ‘suspicious’.

This week officers have been continuing their investigations into his death but are yet to find a breakthrough in the case.

The Tayside Police incident unit returned to Kinloch Street on Thursday as they appealed for anyone with any information regarding Mr English to come forward.

And police believe somebody in the Carnoustie area could hold vital information that could help them in their inquiries.

Detective Chief Inspector Iain Wales said: “I believe that there is someone in the town who has vital information that they have still to share with the police, information that could help us to establish the exact circumstances in which Tony died.

“They need to come forward and assist the investigation.”

Mr English had lived in Carnoustie for around 30 years after moving from Lisburn, County Antrim in Northern Ireland.

He had worked offshore for many years and had also worked as a caddy.

Anyone who can assist the investigation should call 0300 111 2222, or speak to any officer. Alternatively, information can be passed anonymously via the charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
