A man killed in a ''brutal and violent attack'' in his own home has been named by police.

John Cameron, 46, was found dead in a property in Stonebank Grove in the Castlemilk area of Glasgow at around 2.15pm on Friday.

It is thought there was a disturbance at the address the night before Mr Cameron was found.

Police said a post mortem examination is to be carried out but the death is being treated as murder.

Officers are understood to be following a definite line of inquiry.

Detective Chief Inspector Paul Livingstone described the circumstances as ``a brutal and violent attack''.

He said: ``It is absolutely imperative that we trace whoever is responsible as soon as possible.

''From our inquiries so far, we understand that there may have been a disturbance within the property the previous night and I would appeal to anyone with information to come forward.

''If you were in Stonebank Grove or the surrounding area on the evening of Thursday 16 February, particularly between 2100 and 2330 hours, and saw anything suspicious please get in touch.

''No matter how insignificant you think your information may be, let us be the judge of that, as it could prove to be vital in helping us find the person responsible for this horrific crime.''

Anyone with information should contact detectives at the Major Investigation Teams via 101 or call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
