Gardaí identify man found dead in Cork
GARDAÍ have identified the man whose dismembered body was found at a house in Cork.
Frankie Dunne (64) from Cork city was discovered on Saturday.
A murder investigation was launched after Mr Dunne's body was found decapitated and without arms.
The Office of the State Pathologist visited the scene and later conducted a post-mortem examination.
The results have not been released by gardaí for operational reasons, but it is understood Mr Dunne died violently.
In recent months, Mr Dunne was living in high-support housing operated by Cork Simon.
It is close to Castlegreina House, where his body was discovered by a neighbour in the yard. The house has been unoccupied for years and there have been several incidents of anti-social behaviour in the area.
Garda detective superintendent Michael Comyns said Mr Dunne's body was only at the scene for a few days.
He added that he would not say if the murder took place in the area where the body was found. He said officers were conducting house-to-house inquiries as part of their investigation.
A niece of Mr Dunne paid tribute to him on social media saying his family and friends were "all numb and in shock".
