Deniss Timosejevs Garda Press Office

Gardaí treating death of 22-year-old Latvian man in Swords as 'suspicious'

Gardaí are trying to locate a number of personal items belonging to the man including his driving licence, bank card and mobile phone.

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.
