A murder victim who was found dead within a Townhead flat earlier this week was subjected to a "brutal attack" within his home before he died, it has been revealed. 

The body of Tomasz Lipiec was discovered in a Dobbies Loan property at around 6.45pm on Monday. 

The Glasgow Times understands alarm bells were raised after the 33-year-old, who required a wheelchair due to having an amputated leg, failed to turn up to a housing association meeting.

Officers are now treating the unexplained death as murder as detectives at Police Scotland carry out extensive enquiries to establish the exact circumstances surrounding Mr Lipiec's death.

Speaking to STV News, Detective inspector Peter Crombie revealed "vulnerable" Mr Lipiec was subjected to a vicious altercation within his flat before he died.

He said: "Tomasz was subject to a brutal attack within his home address.

“Tomasz is obviously a vulnerable male and it’s imperative we find the people – or person – responsible for this.”

He added: “We’re keeping an open mind in relation to the circumstances surrounding Tomasz’s death.
