Gardaí believe man was killed days before body found

Gardaí believe a man whose body was found in Co Kildare yesterday afternoon had been killed days earlier.

Shane Knott, 36, had been attacked and sustained severe head injuries.

His body was discovered in the garden of a house in Naas.

A man in his 40s who was arrested at the scene is still being questioned by gardaí.

He was arrested on suspicion of murder.

Detectives believe Mr Knott was killed in the house before his body was moved to the garden.

His body was discovered in the garden at around 1.30pm yesterday afternoon.

Gardaí were alerted to the attack after a man went into a garda station in Dublin and reported that a person related to him had killed another man.

The crime scene was sealed off and a short time later, a man arrived at the scene and was arrested on suspicion of murder.

He is still being detained at a garda station in Co Kildare and can be questioned for up to 24 hours by which time he must either be charged or released.

He availed of a rest period overnight during which his detention period was suspended.

Garda forensic specialists today examined the scene and searched for evidence in the surrounding area of the Eustace estate in Naas.

Gardaí searched bins in the estate for evidence and a possible murder weapon that could have been disposed of after the attack.

They suspect Mr Knott could have been attacked earlier this week with a blunt instrument and that his body lay undiscovered until yesterday afternoon.

Mr Knott had recently been reported missing and gardaí suspect he may have been killed during a drunken row in the house a few days ago before his body was moved outside.

Detectives say they are following a definite line of inquiry and are not looking for anyone else at present in connection with the investigation.
