Two Arrested In Connection With Discovered Body

Two people have been arrested in connection with the discovery of a body in Finglas in Co Dublin in January.

Gardaí said one male in his late 20's and a female in her late teens were arrested in north inner city this morning at approximately 7.30am. They are currently being detained under the Offences Against State Act at Finglas and Cabra Garda Stations respectively.

The arrests were made in relation to the discovery of the body of Peter Gunn found on Dunsoghly Lane, The Ward, Co. Dublin earlier this year.

Gardai in Finglas launched an investigation into the discovery of the body, which was discovered dumped on the side of Dunsoghly Lane, a minor roadway in the Ward leading to Finglas and close to the Brock Inn pub, shortly after 9.00pm on the 15th of January.

Gardai said at the time that Mr Gunne's body may have been there for as long as a week.

The area was sealed off following the find, with crime scene examiners from the Garda Technical Bureau arriving on the scene. The State Pathologist was also notified of the discovery.
