Evening Times - - FRONT PAGE - BY STE­WART PATERSON

PO­LICE are still wait­ing to iden­tify the body found in a park i n the east end of Glas­gow.

A mem­ber of the pub­lic dis­cov­ered the body i n Hog­a­rth Park in Carn­tyne shortly af­ter 5.30pm on Mon­day.

The park was sealed off with a cor­don put up round the perime­ter of the park as in­ves­ti­ga­tions started.

Sev­eral po­lice of­fi­cers stood guard through­out yes­ter­day to all en­trances to the park and at var­i­ous sec­tions where peo­ple could gain ac­cess, on Carn­tyne Road, Todd Street, Ledaig Street and Ed­in­burgh Road.

The Evening Times re­ported yes­ter­day how a num­ber of of­fi­cers and an am­bu­lance rushed to the site late on Mon­day af­ter­noon.

Peo­ple in the area said they were un­aware of any in­ci­dent un­til the large po­lice pres­ence ap­peared.

One woman who lives close to the park said: “The first I knew was when I saw all the po­lice around the park.”

Po­lice said that they were still in the process of iden­ti­fy­ing if the body was that of a man or woman.

It is un­der­stood the body has lain undis­cov­ered for some time.

A Po­lice Scot­land spokesman said: “For­mal iden­ti­fi­ca­tion is still to take place and a post-mortem will take place to es­tab­lish the ex­act cause of death, which of­fi­cers are treat­ing as un­ex­plained at this time.

“A re­port will be sent to the Procu­ra­tor Fis­cal.”
