Detective Inspector Wes Knights, from GMP's Major Incident Team, said: "The investigation is in its very early stages but from enquiries so far we believe this man was subjected to a brutal attack at some point on Saturday.
"The family is understandably beside themselves and we are doing everything we can to find out exactly what happened to him and those who are responsible for his death.
"Specially trained officers continue to offer their support to them, while a team of detectives and forensic officers are trawling through potential evidence and information that can help us piece together the hours leading up to his death.
"There will be a police presence on Heysham Avenue and I would urge anyone who knows anything to please contact us so we can give this man's family the answers they deserve."
