THE death of a man in the Abronhill area of Cumbernauld earlier this week is being treated as “unexplained”, as Police detectives start an investigation. 

At 11:40am yesterday morning (17 December) the body of a man was discovered near Forrest Road, in the Abronhill area of Cumbernauld. Police confirmed the discovery later in the afternoon, with officers remaining on scene well into the evening.

This evening (18 December) Police Scotland has confirmed that the death is being treated as “unexplained”, with a spokeswoman for the force confirming that a post-mortem will take place shortly.

“A post mortem examination will be carried out in due course to establish the exact cause of death,” the Police Scotland spokeswoman confirmed.

The spokeswoman added: "Police are treating the death as unexplained and a formal identification has still to take place. Inquiries are continuing."

This evening’s news came after a confirmation yesterday afternoon that the body had been found near Forrest Road – with local residents telling Cumbernauld Media that the body was found near Medlar Road underpass. 

The sad discovery came after another man’s body was discovered on Forrest Road on December 2, when the body of a 59-year-old male was discovered near to Blackthorn Road.
