Renewed Appeal Over Phoenix Park Death

Exactly one year on from the discovery of a body in Phoenix Park, Gardaí have renewed their appeal for information.

The body of Eugenia Bratis, a Romanian National, was discovered by two members of the public who were walking in a wooded area just off Military Road at 3.30pm on the 5th August 2009.

To date only one of these men has come forward to assist investigating Gardaí. The 2nd witness is described as being 5’7” to 5’ 8”, bald and of average build, this man is believed to be in his late 60’s or early 70’s.

Two people have been arrested in connection with this investigation and to date the suspect has yet to be identified. Gardaí have carried out an extensive investigation and in excess of 1000 lines of enquiry have been explored.

A second male witness, who discovered Eugenia’s body, is being asked to contact the incident room at Cabra.

Members of the Roma and Romanian Community who knew Eugenia or any person who may have information is asked to contact Gardaí.
