The family of a 42 year old man who died in Urmston have paid tribute to him.
Phillip Owen's body was found at his home on Gloucester Road at 7pm last Sunday evening.
He had a single stab wound to his neck.
Detectives have launched a murder investigation and are now appealing to the public for information.
He was a good brother and son and always worked really hard at everything he did. He could make friends in a second and was a really likeable person who lived live to the full.
This is now a murder enquiry and we will do everything we can to bring those responsible to justice.
“Our thoughts are with Phillip’s family at this difficult time and specially trained officers are on hand to offer their support.
“We are now appealing for the public’s help with our investigation, any information you have could be a vital part of the jigsaw.
“The loss of any loved one is heart breaking but for the victim’s family and friends to lose him like this must be unbearable and I would urge anyone with knowledge to get in touch with us.”
Anyone with information should call police on 101, quoting incident number 2397 of 30/10/16, or Crimestoppers,
