Man being questioned over violent death in Co Kildare


Gardaí are questioning a man in his 40s in connection with the violent death of another man in Co Kildare.

The body of the man was found at a house in Eustace Demesne in Naas yesterday afternoon.

The scene has been preserved and a post-mortem examination is due to be carried out later today.

The suspect was arrested on suspicion of murder.

The criminal investigation commenced when a man went into a garda station and reported that he believed a person may have been killed in Co Kildare.

Gardaí then went to a house in the Eustace Demesne estate on the outskirts of Naas where they discovered the body of a man in the garden at around 1.30pm.

He is believed to have been living there with at least one other person and had been the victim of a violent assault.

The scene was sealed off and the Garda Technical Bureau is to conduct a forensic examination today.

The State pathologist’s office was alerted and a preliminary examination was carried out yesterday afternoon before the body was removed to Naas General Hospital.

Gardaí have said the post-mortem examination will determine the course of the investigation, however, they are treating the case as murder and have assigned to it the resources of a murder investigation.

The arrested man was taken to a garda station in Kildare where he is being detained under section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act.

He has been provided with access to legal representation and medical attention and can be questioned for up to 24 hours.
