INVESTIGATION UNDERWAY AFTER TWO BODIES FOUND IN SLIGO
An investigation is underway following the deaths of two people – a 9-year-old boy and 21-year-old man – in Co Sligo.
The discovery was made in an area known as Banada in Tubbercurry yesterday evening.
A 9-year-old boy was found in the house with stab wounds, while a 21-year-old man dead was found in a shed outside.
The young boy was removed from the scene by Air Ambulance to Sligo Regional Hospital where he was pronounced dead a short time later.
The scene has been preserved while gardai carry out a technical examination and the Office of the State Pathologist has been notified.
Local Councillor Jerry Lundy says the community is in shock.
“I am absolutely shocked when I heard this new this morning when I got up” he said.
“I’m really hocked – but everybody that I’ve spoken to in the community is so shocked and horrified and saddened” he added.
