The Grand Canal towpath at Cappincur, Tullamore, county Offaly yesterday
Last night/this morning.
Via RTÉ News:
A 40-year-old man was released from garda custody and declared no longer to be a suspect in the case.
The man had been arrested by gardaí within an hour of the discovery of the body of Ashling Murphy.
He had been questioned for seven hours on Wednesday evening before he rested overnight and more than 20 hours yesterday.
RTÉ News understands the man consistently denied any involvement in the murder during garda interviews.
Detectives continued to interview witnesses and gather forensic evidence, including DNA, and as a result of their inquiries, they discovered yesterday evening that the man could not have been involved in the murder.
So the Gardai managed to wrongfully arrest and release an innocent man but not before it’s plastered all over the media by the Irish Times…and half the websites around the planet (and STILL is) that he was from a certain country, well known and established in the area, of a certain age and had allegedly a history of violence. Oh bravo.
