THE DEATH OF a man who was initially believed to have taken his own life is now being treated as suspicious.

John Stewart was found dead in his apartment near Clanbrassil Street in Dublin 8 on Thursday evening.

A post mortem, which was carried out at Dublin City Morgue last Friday, was found to be inconclusive.

It’s now believed the 54-year-old may have died in suspicious circumstances.

Gardaí are seeking to trace Stewart’s movement between Tuesday 1 December and Wednesday 2 December.

It’s believed he may have spent some time in Dublin city centre. He was wearing a grey padded zip up coat, light coloured jeans and a grey woolly hat.

The 54-year-old is described as being 5ft 10 inches in height and of average build.

Investigating gardaí are appealing for the public’s assistance with their investigation and anyone with information is asked to contact Kevin Street Garda Station on 6669400, the Garda Confidential Line on 1800 666111 or any garda station.
