POLICE IN THE North are appealing for information, after a 63-year-old man was found dead in his home in the Donaghadee Road area of Bangor last Wednesday, Christmas Eve.

Ronald Reid’s body was found with unexplained injuries, according to investigators.

“At this stage we are treating Ronald’s death as suspicious,” Detective Chief Inspector Ian Wilson said.

“A post mortem examination has taken place and a number of unexplained physical injuries have been identified.

“From our initial enquiries we believe these injuries may have been sustained on Monday 22nd December.

“I have released a photograph of Ronald as he would have frequented the town centre of Bangor regularly and I am appealing for anyone who saw him between Friday 20th and Monday 22nd December or anyone with any information which may assist us with our enquiries to contact detectives at CID in Bangor on 101.

“Information can also be passed anonymously through the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
