Postmortem reveals man had suffered unexplained injuries
Gardaí are investigating the sudden death of a man in Co Donegal and are appealing for the public’s help.
The man in his mid-40s was found dead in a house in Oakfield Close, Buncrana at 6.30pm on Sunday.
“While we can say that the man died from natural causes, there were some unexplained injuries to the body consistent with either a fall or as a result of being in a vehicle that was involved in a collision,” it added.
The Garda statement said officers were called to the scene of a single vehicle crash at Slab Road, Burnfoot shortly before midnight St Patrick’s night, Saturday March 17th.
A white Renault van had crashed, but there was nobody at the scene when gardaí arrived.
“Gardaí are investigating a link between this van and sudden death of the man in Buncrana. The van has been removed from the scene for a full technical examination and the roadway in the area of the crash is sealed off to facilitate a technical examination of the area by Garda Crime Scene Investigators,” the Garda statement concluded.
Officers have called on anyone with information to contact Buncrana Garda station on 074 9320540.
