Nobody has yet been charged over his death.

Detectives want to trace 29-year-old Ahmed Farrah in connection with the death.

They believe the Broomhall man, who is also known as Reggie, could hold vital information about the killing.

Farrah is said to be actively evading arrest and detectives have warned anyone shielding him that they face prosecution.

Farrah has been described as '˜key' to police enquiries and the Crimestoppers reward of £5,000 is available for information leading to his arrest.
