Police issue appeal over unexplained death of man

By Allan Preston

Detectives have appealed for information on the final movements of a 24-year-old man in Warrenpoint who died suddenly over the weekend.

Padraig O'Hanlon was found dead in his home in Warrenpoint at 3am on Sunday. Pending a post mortem examination, his death is being treated as unexplained.

Detective Sergeant Emme Wallace said: "Padraig was out [on Saturday] morning and arrived home at about 4pm."

"We are trying to trace his movements between 11am and 4pm [on Saturday] to establish if anything happened in that period that may have a bearing on his death.

"If you were with Padraig, or if you saw him during the relevant period, please call the detectives on 101."

Reacting to the shocking news, friends of Mr O'Hanlon paid their respects on Facebook.

Stephen Burns said: "Thank you for all the good times we have had together. They are memories we will always talk about in the times to come.

"RIP my friend we will always love ya and we will never forget you."

Niamh Mc Nally added: "Rest easy buddy, you were a true gentleman. Watch over us all. Shine bright Padraig O'Hanlon xx".
