idea of any­one hurt­ing our Steven, who was more than just a friend to us all.”

It comes after po­lice were seen go­ing door-to-door at Kir­riemuir’s Cor­tachy Road in a bid to find CCTV footage that could bring his killer to jus­tice. Eg­nanoss Road still re­mains closed for the in­ves­ti­ga­tion.

Mean­while, de­tec­tives are re-ap­peal­ing for any­one with in­for­ma­tion to come for­ward.

Se­nior in­ves­ti­gat­ing of­fi­cer, De­tec­tive Su­per­in­ten­dent James Smith of the Ma­jor In­ves­ti­ga­tion Team, said: “It’s now been a week since Steven’s bru­tal mur­der and his fam­ily and friends are dev­as­tated by their loss – our thoughts re­main firmly with them dur­ing this dis­tress­ing time.

“This was a young man who was a son, a brother, a cousin, and a very good friend to many peo­ple. It is heart­break­ing for every­one who knew Steven to try to come to terms with his life be­ing cut short in this vi­o­lent way.

“Find­ing Steven’s killer(s) is a pri­or­ity for us, and I have a team of de­tec­tives ab­so­lutely de­ter­mined to find those re­spon­si­ble.

“I would like to re­peat our ap­peals to the public for as­sis­tance as I still firmly be­lieve the an­swers lie within the lo­cal com­mu­nity.

“Any­one with any in­for­ma­tion should con­tact Po­lice Scot­land on 101, or speak to a po­lice of­fi­cer.

“Al­ter­na­tively, you can con­tact the in­de­pen­dent char­ity Crimestop­pers anony­mously on 0800 555111, or via their anony­mous on­line form.”

Po­lice have a ded­i­cated email ad­dress for in­for­ma­tion — op­er­a­tionre­duce@scot­land.pnn. po­
