Gardaí appeal for public's assistance to locate phone of young man found dead in field

Gardaí are also appealing to taxi drivers, bus drivers or anyone with dashcam footage recorded in the Dunleer area to make it available to them.

GARDAÍ ARE APPEALING to the public for information after an 18-year-old was found dead in a field in Louth yesterday morning.

The body of the young man, who has been named as Cameron Joseph Reilly, was discovered in a field at Shamrock Hill, Dunleer.

A post mortem confirmed that the 18-year-old died “in violent circumstances” and a murder investigation is now underway.

Gardaí in Drogheda have said that Cameron was last seen in the vicinity of Ardee Road, Dunleer at around 12.30am on Saturday morning before his body was discovered at 8am at Rivervale, Dunleer.

Investigating officers are appealing to anyone who was in his company or with information about his movements on Friday evening and Saturday morning to make contact with them.

They are also appealing to taxi drivers, bus drivers or anyone with dashcam footage recorded in the Dunleer area to make it available to them.

Speaking at Drogheda Garda Station Inspector John O’Flaherty said:

We are particularly appealing for assistance from the public to locate Cameron’s phone, an Apple iPhone 8X (64GB) with a green hard back cover, space grey in colour.

“We would ask home and business owners in Dunleer to check their property including wheelie bins and waste skips. We would also ask anyone offered a phone for sale as described to contact us.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact Drogheda Garda Station on 041-9874200, the Garda Confidential Line at 1800 666 111 or any garda station.
