Detectives have renewed an appeal for witnesses following the death of a man near the Royal Alexandra Hospital in Paisley.

He has now been identified and Police have named him as Stephen Quigley, 26, from Neilston.

Stephen was found in the grounds of the hospital off Craw Road around 7.20am on Wednesday, 24th March, and his death remains unexplained.

As part of enquiries carried out by Police Scotland’s Major Investigation Team, it’s believed Stephen may have been at an address in the area of Bourock Square, Barrhead, on Tuesday, 23rd March, and may have travelled from there at around 5pm to the Royal Alexandria Hospital within a blue Ford Focus.

Detectives are asking anyone in either of these areas, who may have seen the blue Ford Focus around this time on Tuesday evening, to get in touch.

They are also keen to view any relevant dash-cam footage that may have captured a vehicle of this description being driven erratically or any suspicious activity.

Following this, around 2am on Wednesday, 24th March, an assault has taken place at Bourock Square, Barrhead, and a 26-year-old man was seriously injured.

Officers also wish to speak to anyone who may have witnessed anything suspicious in the area at this time.

Detective Chief Inspector Scott McCallum said: “Stephen’s family are being provided with support by specialist officers and have been updated. Our thoughts are with them at this time.

“We would urge anyone who believes they may have seen Stephen prior him being found on Wednesday morning to please get in touch as soon as possible.

“In particular, we are keen to speak to anyone who may have been driving near to the hospital, or in the area of Bourock Square, Barrhead, around 5pm on Tuesday, 23 March, and saw a blue Ford Focus.

“Anyone who can help our enquiries is asked to call 101, quoting reference number 0409 of 24 March. Alternatively, Crimestoppers can be called anonymously on 0800 555 111.”

Stephen is described as being white, around 5ft 10in tall, and of slim build with short dark hair.

At the time of his death, he was wearing a blue hooded top, zipped up, black tracksuit bottoms and black trainers.

A Major Incident Public Portal (MIPP) has been set up online to allow to public to submit information directly to the Major Investigation Team.
