GARDAÍ HAVE SAID they are not treating the death of an elderly man in Donegal as suspicious.

The man’s body was found in a house in the Garryharry area of Letterkenny on Thursday night and was pronounced dead by emergency services.

In an appeal yesterday, gardaí said the alarm was raised when a car associated with the man was earlier found abandoned in the nearby Kirkstown area.

A post-mortem examination was carried out on the man’s body today and gardaí said there are no suspicious circumstances surrounding his death.
