Gardai renew appeal for information about body found in suitcase

Gardai are renewing their appeal for information regarding the body of a man which was discovered in the Grand Canal near Ardclough in Co Kildare.

Following yesterday’s appeal for people who were in the area of the canal between Thursday and Saturday Gardaí received a large number of calls from the public and the information received is being examined by the investigation team. 

Superintendent Gerry Wall said, "We know that the man was killed at another location and the focus of our investigation is to find where the man was killed.

“We are asking people returning to their property or premises after the weekend to check to see if there was anything unusual. 

“Was a room or equipment disturbed or their premises in anyway different than when they left.

“Did you as an employee or employer notice anything different in your premises?

"If so please contact the incident room at Leixlip Garda Station 01 666 7800". 

Witnesses are asked to contact Leixlip Garda Station 01 666 7800, the Garda Confidential Line 1800 666 111, or any Garda Station.
