Police have named a man who was found dead in Arbroath on Wednesday evening.
A major investigation was launched after the body of Frankie Melvin, 34, was found on Spitalfield Place at about 6pm.
A 41-year-old man has been arrested in connection with the incident.
Police were on the scene all day Thursday with a large cordon in place around the area.
Forensics teams could be seen scouring the scene in the afternoon, with residents being signed in and out of the area.
Detective Inspector Allan Thomson, of Dundee CID, has asked locals to keep their eyes peeled for “discarded” and “unusual” items that do not belong to them on their properties.
He said: “This would appear to have been an isolated incident with no threat to the general public or the wider community.
“An extensive investigation is ongoing and officers are carrying out door-to-door inquiries in the area and surrounding streets as well as searches.
“I would ask anyone who may come across any items, in their garden for example items of clothing which may have been discarded or any other unusual items, that do not belong to them, that they do not touch these but call us immediately as they may be important to our inquiries.”
He also called on witnesses to come forward.
DI Thomson said: “I would also ask anyone who may have been in the area around 6pm last night and who may have seen anything unusual at or around Newbigging Drive, Spitalfield Place, or surrounding area, to get in touch.
“In addition, anyone with any CCTV, mobile phone, dash-cam or any other footage that they think would assist the inquiry are asked to contact us.
“Anyone with information that could help officers with their enquiries is asked to contact Police Scotland on 101, quoting incident number 2702 of Wednesday, August 26, or make a call anonymously to the charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
