Upon discovery and identification of the body, gardaí upgraded their investigation to a murder inquiry and arrested a man in his 20s yesterday morning.

The man, arrested in north Dublin, has this morning been released without charge and a file has been sent to the Director of Public Prosecutions, gardaí say.
