In June 2022, a Gary Handling from the Stranraer area was found severely injured in John Simpson drive.
He was rushed to the hospital, but couldn’t survive and died shortly after being admitted.
His death, and the arrest of his suspect, Mark Allison, triggered an indefinite police investigation.
As of this writing, the investigation is ongoing, but many questions remain unanswered.
The police have arrested and charged a man with murder, but have not released the name of that man.
Investigators have identified the man as Gary Handling, who was a father of two.
The man was also charged with assault and attempted to thwart the process of justice.
He has been remanded in custody and will be examined further by prosecutors.
