Gardaí in Sligo are renewing their appeal for help in identifying the body of a man who was discovered on a Sligo beach in 2009.

On June 16th 2009, the body of a man was found on a beach at Rosses Point in Co. Sligo. His body was taken to Sligo University Hospital, where a post-mortem was carried out the following day and death by foul play was ruled out.

Items found on the rocks near where he was discovered included black leather Finn Comfort shoes, size 44, manufactured in 2002 in Germany; dark socks; a black leather C&A jacket; navy C&A chino trousers; a black sleeveless Tommy Hilfiger jumper; and black leather belt, made in Italy.

It was established that the deceased man had recently arrived in Sligo and had checked himself into a hotel under the false name Peter Bergman on June 12th. He was spotted in CCTV footage around the Sligo area in the days before he was found deceased at Rosses Point.

The deceased is buried in an unmarked grave in Sligo Cemetery but despite a long investigation, the body of the man known as Peter Bergman has never been identified.

Investigating Gardaí are now renewing their appeal to the public for assistance in bringing this case to a conclusion.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Sligo Garda Station 071-9157000, The Garda Confidential Line 1800 666 111 or any Garda Station.
