GARDAÍ HAVE SAID a murder investigation is underway after a post-mortem on the body of a man found in north Dublin yesterday.

The body of the man in his 40s was found at a house on Glendhu Road in Ashtown. Gardaí said his body has not been formally identified and DNA tests are being carried out. The results are expected tomorrow and a further appeal will be made.

They also confirmed that time of death has not yet been established.

For “operational purposes” the results of the post-mortem are not being released but this is now being considered a murder investigation.
