Detectives have charged a man with murder following the sudden death of 22-year-old Barry Dixon at a flat in Perth.
Mr Dixon was found fatally injured at a top floor property in the city’s Wallace Court on Tuesday morning.
He was taken to Ninewells Hospital, where he later died of his injuries.
Police Scotland has confirmed a 21-year-old man is due to appear at Perth Sheriff Court on Thursday, charged with Mr Dixon’s murder.
A 23-year-old woman who was arrested in connection with the death has been released pending further enquiries.
The family of former Braeview Academy pupil Mr Dixon paid tribute in a statement issued through Police Scotland.
They wrote: “Barry, a loving grandson, son, brother and nephew, has been taken from us so young and we are devastated.
“He loved spending time with his family and friends. He was kind hearted and generous, and will be missed greatly by all of us.”
Investigators have appealed for anyone who was in or around Wallace Court and Wallace Crescent, in the city’s Tulloch area, in the early hours of Tuesday to get in touch.
They also want to hear from anyone who had contact with Mr Dixon the day before.
Part of Wallace Court was sealed off by police throughout Tuesday as part of a major investigation that focused on several locations across the city.
Friends flooded social media with tributes to Mr Dixon. One posted: “R.I P Barry, you are gone far too soon. Still remember you as a wee boy going to primary, I used to walk along the road with you and your granny in the mornings.”
Another said: “Rest easy brother, 17 years of friendship I’ll not forget.”
Residents at Wallace Court told how they had become frightened to leave their homes because of an apparent rise in “trouble”. Some reported hearing raised voices the night before Mr Dixon died.
In late December 2017, Polish national Rafal Rymarkiewicz was stabbed to death in the same block.
Lorna Gannon, 51, who has lived in the area for six years, said: “It’s frightening.
“I’ve got a dog and I’ve got to go out with the dog at night and it scares me what might happen.
“There’s always trouble here weekly but the police aren’t always involved.”
She said: “It’s getting ridiculous. When incidents do happen it starts right outside my bedroom window.”
