Police are investigating the sudden death of a 25-year-old man at the weekend.

Conall Kerrigan was discovered in the area of Bank Place of Londonderry on Sunday August 23 at around 10.20pm.

It is believed Conall had been in the Metro Bar on Saturday evening and left at around 2am on Sunday morning.

Detective Sergeant Brian Reid said: "A post mortem examination is due to be carried out on Tuesday 25th August to determine the cause of Conall’s death. Until cause has been determined, his death is being treated as ‘unexplained’ and the circumstances leading up to the discovery of his body are being examined by police.

"I am keen to gather as much information as possible about Conall’s movements in the period after he left the Metro Bar early on Sunday morning.

"I would particularly like to hear from anyone who was in the Bank Place or Foyle Street areas between 2.15am and 2.45am on Sunday morning. I would ask those people to get in touch with police, the smallest detail just might help us establish where Conall was during this time, what he was doing and who he was with.”

The PSNI is appealing for anyone who seen Conall after he left the Metro bar or anyone who witnessed any form of altercation on the walls close to Millennium Forum during the early hours of Sunday morning to contact Detectives in Strand Road on the non-emergency number 101. 

Information can also be passed anonymously via the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
