Tragedy unfolded in the early hours of this morning on the quiet streets of Clonmel in Tipperary. The situation is described as “Bizarre” by local Gardai. The body of a young man was found at the foot of the bell tower of Saints Peter & Pauls’ Parish Church.
Described as wearing “some kind of hoodie” the deceased had lethal blades strapped to his wrists. The young man carried no identification and the Gardai are appealing for information from the public. Anybody who was in the area between the hours of 2 and 4 am on Feb 6th are asked to contact the local Garda station.
They are particularly interested in the whereabouts of a cartload of straw which has gone missing from the grounds of the Church.
