Police seek pair over wallet theft from man later found dead

By Jonathan McCambridge

Police in Londonderry are seeking to trace and identify two men over the theft of the wallet of a man who was later found dead.

Officers have made the new appeal in relation to the robbery of Conall Kerrigan that occurred at around 2.34am on Sunday, August 23 on the Derry walls at Bank Place leading to Foyle Street.

Detective Inspector Conor McStravick said: "Conall Kerrigan died on Sunday, August 23.

"He had been at the Metro Bar earlier, but left there, and was later seen on the city walls. He was last seen on the walls near Foyle Street at around 3.03am on Sunday morning." He continued: "At this stage we do not believe that Conall's death was as a result of a crime. However, we believe that his wallet was stolen from him some time before his death.

"No wallet was found in his possession when his body was discovered, but after extensive searches, it was recovered by police.

"I would like to speak to the two men pictured who may have information about the robbery or the movements of Conall Kerrigan in the early hours of Sunday, August 23.2

He added: "The men, or anyone who knows them, are asked to contact detectives at Strand Road Police Station on the non-emergency number 101."
