A POLICE probe has been launched after two young men were found dead in separate properties in Newton Mearns.

The alarm was first raised at a property on Castle Road at around 3.15pm on Sunday in the plush Glasgow suburb. The body of a 29-year-old was discovered.

Detectives making enquires were then sent to nearby Moorhill Crescent where they found the body of a 28-year-old inside a property.

They are now investigating how the men died, but the Evening Times understands that the deaths may be drugs-related.

A spokeswoman for the force said: “At around 3.15pm on Sunday afternoon, police were called to reports that a 29-year-old man had died in a property in Castle Road, Newton Mearns.

“Emergency services responded and a post mortem is due to be carried out.

“On making further enquiries, officers attended a property in Moorhill Crescent, Newton Mearns.

“There the body of a 28-year-old man was found.

“Police investigations are now being carried out to find out how both men died.”
