Murder case detectives return to scene two weeks on

Detectives probing the murder of a man in Glasgow have returned to the area a fortnight on from when he was found injured as they continue their hunt for information.

Billyjoe Bates was found seriously hurt in Ashgill Road, in the Milton area, at around 2.30pm on November 18.

The 28-year-old, from the city, was taken by ambulance to Glasgow Royal Infirmary, but he died in the early hours of November 22.

Plain clothes and uniform officers returned to the street on Sunday afternoon to speak to people in an attempt to jog their memories for information which could help the investigation.

Detective Chief Inspector Suzie Chow, of Police Scotland’s Major Investigation Team, said: “The friends and family of Mr Bates have been left completely devastated by his murder and we are appealing for the community of Milton to support us in finding out what happened to him and why.”

Officers have been speaking to pedestrians and motorists, who may travel through the area on a regular basis, “in the hope that they can remember something they saw or heard which seemed out of the ordinary”.

She added: “Even the slightest detail could be important in helping us get to the bottom of this murder investigation and provide answers for the family of Mr Bates.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact the team on 101, quoting incident number 2422 of Sunday November 18.
