Ronald Reid’s death at his apartment is being treated as suspicious

POLICE have renewed their appeal for information about the circumstances surrounding the death of Ronald Reid last month.

The body of the 63-year-old was discovered at his apartment on the Donaghadee Road in Bangor on Christmas Eve.

Detectives from the PSNI’s Major Investigation Team have assumed responsibility for the investigation.

They are particularly interested in activity around the block of flats where Mr Reid lived on Friday 19 December.

Detective Chief Inspector Justyn Galloway of MIT said: “Since Mr Reid’s body was found in his flat on Christmas Eve, detectives from local CID have been progressing inquiries.

“It is now more appropriate for Serious Crime Branch to take forward the investigation into what remains at this stage a suspicious death.

“Detectives are making house-to-house inquires in the local area and distributing an appeal poster with particular times and locations of interest to us.

“We are re-issuing a photograph of Ronald to the media as he would have frequented the town centre of Bangor regularly and been known to many local people. I am also updating our appeal for information and assistance.

“I want to hear from anyone who saw or heard anything unusual or suspicious at the Savoy flats complex on the Donaghadee Road between 8am and 9am on the morning of Friday 19 December.

“I would ask anyone with any information which may assist us with our enquiries to contact detectives at Serious Crime Branch in Newtownards on the new non-emergency number 101. Information can also be passed anonymously through the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
