A 35-YEAR-OLD man has been charged in connection with the killing of Polish man Patryk Krupa, whose body was found in the River Shannon near Athlone last June.

The man was arrested in the Dublin area yesterday.

He was charged in connection with the investigation and appeared before Mullingar District Court yesterday afternoon. He was remanded to appear before Cloverhill District Court at a later date.

Two other people have been charged in connection with the investigation.

Appeal

In an appeal for information to the Polish community the month after the murder, gardaí said they believed the victim left Athlone Town in a black BMW 3 Series, with a ’06 D’ reg plate at around 6.30pm on the evening of 20 June. There were four other people in the car.

“It is also believed that the car was driven from Athlone Town to an area known as the ‘Number 1’,   which is at Boggafin, Athlone, Co Roscommon.  This is an area located underneath the Athlone by-pass where it crosses the River Shannon,” the Garda appeal said.

The car was later recovered at Cornamaddy, to the north-east of Athlone, in the early hours of the following morning.
