POLICE IN BELFAST are appealing for two men seen with a man before he died to come forward.
However, the PSNI say that the death is not being treated as suspicious.
31-year-old Brendan McKernan died in hospital on 23 February, following a collapse five days earlier. Detective Inspector Lisa McCambridge says that two men seen with him could shed some light on the death.
“We know Brendan was in the company of two men at a fast food restaurant on Donegall Place at around 6.15pm on 18 February. We are keen to identify and locate these males.
At this time Brendan’s death is not being treated as suspicious and we are seeking to speak with the two individuals as we work to establish the circumstances leading up to his death.
“We are also keen to locate a phone known to have been in the possession of the deceased but which was not found with him. The Nokia touchscreen device may contain evidence valuable to police but also contains precious photographs that the family wish to have returned.”
Detectives can be contacted at Musgrave Reactive and Organised Crime by calling 101.
