Paul Brannan died after being hit with a bottle.
He had a heart attack a few hours later after the blow caused a haemorrhage that led to a major blockage in an artery.
He was found dead in his flat on the Sunday at 6.30pm.
He was seen on the Saturday by some friends, at his flat after they went round to see him between 11.15am and 12.30pm. They said that there was another man staying with him at the time and that he had told them that Paul Brannan had been hit over the head with a bottle of spirits.
A woman said that Paul Brannan stared at her and didn't look well.
Another person that saw Paul Brannan said that Paul Brannan wasn’t really with it and noted that there were a lot of people coming and going from his flat and that it was always full of scallies.
Three people were arrested on suspicion of murder including a teenage girl but there is no indication of any charges, trials or trial results.
