"Findings from the post mortem merit further enquiry and we need to piece together Stephen’s movements from the 25 July.

“I am asking people to think back over the last few days and consider if they saw Stephen. Did you see him socialise with anyone, do you know where he was, who did he meet and who did he speak to?

"This information will assist us in piecing everything together and establishing the circumstances of Stephen’s death.

"Stephen’s family is understandably very upset and trying to come to terms with what has happened. We are keeping them fully informed of any developments.”
