Johnny Connelly at Speir’s Wharf
John Connelly, 28, also known as Johnny, was discovered in the water at Speirs Wharf in Port Dundas, Glasgow, on Monday, July 22, 2019. That was a week after he was reported missing.
He had failed to return home after spending a day out with his pal in the city centre on Monday, July 15.
Police who have been investigating what happened that evening think he was involved an altercation at the Garscube Road underpass in Cowcaddens around 10.20pm. He had multiple injuries to his head and body.
John, from Cathay Street in Milton and who was known to many as Johnny, was last seen wearing a black Adidas hooded top, with white stripes down the sleeves. He also had on black jogging trousers and royal blue coloured Nike trainers.
Johnny Connelly’s family are devastated
“John’s family are still understandably devastated by his death,” said Detective Inspector John Morrison of Maryhill CID. “It is made all the harder by not knowing what happened to him. We know he was in the city with his pal. But they had separated when heading home for the night.
“Around 10 pm John is seen walking alone in Buchanan Street past Buchanan Galleries. He then went past the bus station and on to Dundasvale Court. Then he went into the underpass at Garscube Road leading to Speirs Wharf in the Cowcaddens area around 10.20.”
Garscube Road at Speirs Wharf is a popular route. It is used by runners, dog walkers and skateboarders.
