Adam Anderson was discovered in a car park off Ann Street, Greenock, at around 3.50pm on Sunday January 2.
The 22-year-old, from Greenock, was taken to the town’s Inverclyde Royal Hospital but died a short time later.
Following a post-mortem examination, his death is now being treated as murder and an investigation is under way, led by detectives from Police Scotland’s Major Investigation Team.

“We are carrying out inquiries to establish the full circumstances which have led to Adam’s death and I would urge anyone with information, no matter how small it may seem, to come forward.
“We are keen to speak to anyone who was in the area in Greenock during the afternoon of Sunday 2 January and may have seen or heard any disturbance to get in touch as soon as you can to help us identify whoever is responsible for Adam’s death.”
