Emergency crews raced to his home at the block of flats in the city’s southside at 12.30pm on Monday, July 24.

Police Scotland said following a post-mortem examination on Tuesday Kyle’s death is being treated as murder and his next of kin have been made aware.

A 33-year-old man has been arrested in connection with the death and inquiries are ongoing.

It’s understood Kyle worked as a healthcare support worker for NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde, having previously worked as a ward clerk.

Devastated colleagues took to social media to pay tribute to the “beautiful soul”.

Claire Robertson wrote: “Kyle was such an amazing guy to work with. Gonna miss our wee shifts together.”

Katrina Gallacher added: “Rest in peace Kyle thoughts are with your family. The ward won’t be the same without you around.”

And Gael Selkirk said: “What an absolute beautiful soul this man was absolutely cherished to have known him sleep tight darling.”

News of his death sent shockwaves through the tower block, with a heightened police presence remaining on the scene this afternoon.

An officer also stood guard within the landing where Kyle stayed.

One shocked resident said: “I’ve lived here for six years and nothing like this has happened. This is quite a quiet block.

“I didn’t know him but I recognised him from coming in and out. It’s a shame. He seemed like such a nice boy.”

Another neighbour said: “I’ve been here for five years and there’s never been any trouble. Everybody keeps themselves to themselves.”

Detective Chief Inspector Peter Sharp said: “Our thoughts are with Kyle’s family and friends at this very difficult time.

“We have a dedicated team of officers working on this investigation and extensive inquiries are ongoing at this time.

“Officers are gathering CCTV footage from the surrounding area and door-to-door inquiries are also being carried out.”

Anyone with information, “no matter how insignificant it might seem”, is asked to either call Police Scotland on 101 or alternatively contact Crimestoppers where information can be given anonymously on 0800 555 111.
