Tributes were paid to a 22-year-old man found dead at a flat in Dundee.
Emergency services were called after neighbours raised the alarm, but nothing could be done to save Lloyd McMahon.
The drama unfolded in Aboyne Avenue, in the Craigie area, shortly after 8pm on Thursday. Police confirmed they attended the property and an ambulance was also called.
The death is not being treated as suspicious.
Margaret Parker, 61, lives in the flat underneath Lloyd’s flat and alerted the police.
She said: “Lloyd was a proper young gentle lad. He was such a lovely boy. If I needed anything from the shops at night he would run along and get it for me. I am disabled so he would always help me if I needed.
“My granddaughter pops in every morning to help me and she loved Lloyd as well. He wasn’t like all the other boys round here and he will be sorely missed by me.
“He always had a smile on his face and it was a smile that will be missed by many.
“I was just laughing and joking with him only the other day. I’m still in shock. I called the police and they came and had to kick the door in because he wasn’t answering his phone.”
Today friends spoke of their sadness at the loss of the former Grove Academy pupil.
Posting on social media site Facebook, Christina Allan said: “RIP Lloyd McMahon. Can’t believe it. Always so happy whenever I saw you.”
Kara Lamond wrote: “Such sad news, can’t believe it. RIP Lloyd you’ll be missed. Such a great guy too. Thoughts go out to his family and close friends at this sad time.”
Other friends described him as a “great guy” and spoke of how they would miss his “cheery face”.
