DCI Colwell told The Herald on Sunday the entire force had been left "very much saddened" by the news.
He said DC Marks was a well-liked and respected Detective Constable working from Charles Cross CID and his colleagues had been left shocked by his death.
Tributes have been paid to the policeman, with Inspector Sally Hutchings, from Crownhill police station, describing her former colleague as a "cheerful and very popular" man.
She told The Herald: "Warren was devoted to his community and worked hard for it. He was always looking for his next job. We are all saddened by this news."
