Neighbour heard ‘screaming and shouting’ before bodies of man and child found

The bodies of a man and child have been discovered at a house in Scotland after a neighbour heard “screaming and shouting”. Police were first called to Argyle Street, Paisley at roughly 8 pm on Monday and are now investigating the “unexplained” deaths. 

They arrived at the property after reports concerning the welfare of the two people inside.

Ambulance crews also rushed to the scene but were too late to save the pair.

One local, who asked not to be named, told the Daily Record: “It was on Monday night, about 8pm.

“We heard shouting and screaming, like a domestic. We never thought anything of it. But then it went quiet for a bit, about half an hour.

“Then suddenly there were police and ambulances and a forensic tent.

“There was a private ambulance and we saw the bodies being taken out to it.”

It was also reported that forensics officers have been in and out of the house over the last few days with a tent erected outside the entrance.

Officers were at the property on Wednesday with police vans seen parked on the street. They say they do not think anyone else was involved in the incident inside the home and the deaths and are treating the deaths as “unexplained”.

Post-mortem examinations will be carried out soon and a report will be sent to the procurator fiscal.

A Police Scotland spokesperson said: “We received a report of concern for a man and a child at a property in the Argyle Street area of Paisley around 8 pm on Monday, May 15.

“Officers attended and a man and a boy were found dead within the property. The deaths are currently being treated as unexplained and post mortem examinations will take place in due course.

“At this time, we have no information to suggest anyone else has been involved. A report has been sent to the procurator fiscal.”
