A MAN found dead in a “murder suicide” in Glasgow appeared with Ross Kemp in a documentary about notorious Scottish prisons.

Locals claim Sinclair, known as Shug and appeared on Ross Kemp’s prison documentary, murdered the tragic mum and then killed himself.

A neighbour told how the girl was left “hysterical” following the horrific discovery at her home in the Knightswood area of the city.

She had returned from a sleep over at a pal’s house.

The neighbour told the Daily Record: “The little girl went home after staying with a pal down the street.


“She is supposed to have found them and then ran back out on to the street to raise the alarm.

“She was hysterical, understandably.”

Sinclair appeared on Kemp’s ITV documentary about infamous Barlinnie prison in Glasgow aired in 2017.

He told the former Eastenders actor lags would “punch you out of your trainers” and described the jail as a “bear pit”.

Sinclair added: “This yard can kick off in two minutes, mate. It can happen in a heartbeat … it’s a dangerous jail to be in.”

A fundraiser has now been set up to support Lizzie’s two little girls.

The GoFundMe page – which has already raised £170 – said: “Due to the tragic event that happened in the Knightswood area 2 young girls have been left without a mother.


“Hoping to raise as much funds as possible to help with funeral arrangements as they have no other family these girls need all the help and support they can get.

“Any donations are greatly appreciated.”

Urging people to donate, family member Shelley Lee said: “My nieces have been left without a mammy and need all the support they can get,

“A good friend of theirs has set this page up, so f***ing heartbroken for them. Please share and keep sharing.”

Locals said Sinclair had only recently moved in with the mum of two, who had stayed there for around five years.

Cops sealed off the first-floor flat as forensic teams searched for clues.

Detectives confirmed they were treating the deaths as suspicious earlier this morning.

And that investigations were continuing into the tragedy.

A Police Scotland spokesperson said: “Following a post mortem examination the circumstances surrounding the deaths are being treated as suspicious.

“Extensive enquiries are ongoing to establish the full circumstances surrounding what happened and a report will be submitted to the Procurator Fiscal”.
