GARDAÍ HAVE LAUNCHED a murder inquiry after the discovery of the body of a man in Donegal.

A 36-year-old Polish man was found at around 4.50pm last Wednesday with serious injuries at his home in Sylvan Park Letterkenny. He was taken to Letterkenny University Hospital where he died the following day.

While it was originally believed the man had died from injuries sustained in a fall, the investigation has been upgraded to murder.

That follows a post mortem was carried out by the State Pathologist Professor Marie Cassidy.

Speaking at Letterkenny Garda Station last night Detective Inspector Pat O’Donnell appealed to any person who may have information in relation to this investigation or to any person who visited Sylyan Park between 8am and 6pm on Wednesday 1 November to contact the incident room at Letterkenny Garda Station on 074 91 67100, the Garda Confidential Line 1 800 666 111 or any garda station.
