GARDAÍ IN DUBLIN have confirmed that they are treating the death of Latvian national Deniss Timosejevs, whose body was found in a field outside Swords this week, as suspicious.

The 22-year-old’s body was found on Tuesday afternoon and was removed to St Columcille’s Hospital, Loughlinstown, where a post-mortem examination was carried out yesterday. However gardaí said the results of the post-mortem will not be released for operational reasons.

Timosejevs was last seen walking in the Thornleigh area of Applewood Village on Monday evening.

When last seen he was wearing a distinctive orange and black coloured bomber-style jacket (as seen in the picture) and a football scarf. He was described as approximately 5’ in height and of slight build. Gardaí are in particular appealing to anyone who may have observed a male fitting this description in the Swords and Balheary areas between Monday evening and Tuesday afternoon to contact them.

Investigating gardaí are also trying to locate a number of personal items missing belonging to the man including a Latvian driving licence and bank card bearing his name and a Sony mobile phone.

Anyone with information asked to contact Swords Garda Station 01-6664700, or the Garda Confidential Line 1800 666 111.
