The 27-year-old was discovered with serious injuries in a common close on Brookfield Road in the town at about 9:05pm on Saturday, April 27. Emergency services were called to the scene, but Jack was pronounced dead shortly after their arrival.

Following the incident, officers quickly secured the area and announced that they were treating the death as suspicious. Since then, tributes to Jack have poured in from friends and family on social media.

Nadia Carter, writing on Facebook, shared her grief, saying, “Your babies will love you forever. Can’t believe I’ve got to tell our babies you’re gone to heaven, just doesn’t feel real – love you always Jack Trainner.”

Kyle Campbell expressed his sadness, writing, “Jack Trainner, where do I begin, brother. I’m sorry it had to end this way. I always thought things might have turned out different.

“I thank you for everything you ever did for me, everything you taught me, shared with me. I could go on and on, but nothing would give credit to the friend/brother you were to me. You had a heart of gold, brother, and I can never repay you enough. Life will never be the same without you. Until we meet again, brother, rest easy.”

Detective Chief Inspector Ally Semple from Police Scotland’s Major Investigation Teams (West) confirmed that officers believe this was a targeted attack and are currently conducting an extensive investigation to determine what happened. The police are seeking information from anyone who may have witnessed the incident or has relevant footage.

“We’d like to hear from anyone with information who has not yet come forward,” said DCI Semple. “We’d be keen to view any doorbell or private CCTV footage or dashcam recordings from the area taken between 8:30pm and 9:15pm on Saturday. This might help us identify any suspects. There will be an increased police presence in the area as our inquiries continue.”
