DETECTIVES from the PSNI’s Major Investigation Team probing the suspicious death of a man last night are appealing for information.
As part of attempts to establish the man’s last known movements, detectives have named him as Dessie Mee, aged 45, from Blenheim Drive in Newtownards.
He was in an apartment and one theory detectives are investigating is that he fell to the ground suffering a serious head injury.
An ambulance was called but he was later pronounced dead at the Ulster Hospital in Dundonald.
Detective Superintendent Kevin Geddes from MIT said: “Mr Mee was found outside Millers House apartment block in Regent Street shortly before 7.50 pm last night. He had been in an apartment immediately beforehand.
“We are appealing for information about Mr Mee’s movements last night and in the last few days.
“We are also appealing for information about activity in and around apartment number 25 at Millers House last night between 6pm and 8.30pm.
“Three people remain in custody, a 29 year old woman and two men aged 35 and 42.
A post mortem examination will take place in due course.
“I would appeal to anyone with information about Mr Mee’s death or activity at the apartment to contact detectives at Newtownards police station.”
