Mystery surrounds the death of two young men whose bodies were found in a Blantyre house this week.
Colin Campbell (25) and Dominic Paterson (21) were discovered in the Murray Crescent property shortly after 6pm on Tuesday.
Strathclyde Police at first said they were treating the deaths as suspicious.
However, yesterday (Wednesday), as investigations progressed, they said the incident was being treated as unexplained.
Officers cordoned off the property on Tuesday as their enquiries into the circumstances surrounding the deaths continued.
It is understood that the house is occupied by Dominics family and the tragic discovery of the two bodies was made by his mum.
Dominic and Colin were former pupils of Holy Cross High School, Hamilton, and had a wide circle of friends throughout South Lanarkshire.
Rangers fan Colin, who was known as Cambo, had spent the weekend with friends in Manchester at the Warehouse Project, a music venue in Trafford Park.
Pals say he returned home on Sunday.
He had been looking forward to seeing Scottish comedian Kevin Bridges at the SECC this weekend.
His friend Dominic, known as Dom, had just begun a one-year HNC course at Motherwell College, studying mechanical engineering.
The colleges principal and chief executive Hugh Logan said: Everyone here is saddened to hear this dreadful news and our thoughts are with his family and friends.
Tributes also poured into Facebook yesterday.
Friend Stephen Tyre posted: Cant believe you have both gone, taken so young, you will both be missed so much, pair of legends, R.I.P xxx.
And Jamie Lee Downie added: So gutted Colin, its just not sinking in! would do anything too see those twinkling blue eyes of yours again, rest honey xxxxxx.
Robert Bradley said: Cant believe my two good friends have been took away from me love u both.
Neighbours were also left shocked by the deaths. One resident said: You often saw the boys coming in and out of the house but they kept themselves to themselves. The families must be devastated.
Another said: The rumour mill is in overdrive but by all accounts this is a very respectable area and the people here are nice.
You just dont know what has happened to them both. It really is a tragedy.
A spokesperson for Strathclyde Police said: Police were called to a property in Blantyres Murray Crescent at 6.10pm on Tuesday, October 8. A post-mortem examination will be carried out on Thursday to determine the exact cause of death.
