Man found dead at home two days after family call police
Prosecutors order police watchdog to investigate officers over their response.
Police Scotland are being investigated after a man was found dead two days after his family called emergency services.
The 51-year-old man's body was discovered in a property in Fallin near Stirling on February 22.
It has emerged the find came two days after the man's family called police about their relative.
Now, a police watchdog has launched an investigation into officers' response to that call and a report on its findings will be handed to prosecutors.
A spokesman for the PIRC said: "The Crown Office and Procurator Fiscal Service (COPFS) has instructed the Police Investigations and Review Commissioner (PIRC) to undertake an investigation after the body of a 51-year-old man was discovered at a residential property in Fallin, near Stirling, on February 22.
"The investigation will focus on the response from Police Scotland to a telephone call made by family on February 20.
"A report on the commissioner's findings will be submitted to the COPFS in due course."
