Bruna Fonseca was found dead at a flat in Cork city on 1 January 2023.

GARDAÍ HAVE ISSUED a renewed appeal for information to assist their investigation into the death of Bruna Fonseca, who was found dead in a flat in Cork City on New Year’s Day.

The 28-year-old Brazilian native was found unresponsive in a flat on Liberty Street in Cork City on New Years Day and was pronounced dead shortly after.
