Gardaí investigates the “all circumstances” surrounding the discovery of a man’s body in the village of West Cork yesterday.
The body was found in Innishannon and has since been taken to Cork University Hospital from the scene.
The man who was in the mid and late 50s is believed to have come from South Africa.
It is believed that he had a heart attack while walking.
It is said that someone from his side at that time tried to help him.
He lived in the village for about six years and worked as a car dealer for a company in Glanmire.
Initially, it was thought that his body was dropped by a car after he was found near the village church.
However, foul play seems to have been left out and gardaí is not believed to be looking for anyone in connection with his death.
Gardaí says the autopsy results will dictate the course of the investigation.
“Gardaí is investigating all the circumstances surrounding the discovery of a man’s body in Innishannon, Cork, on April 5, 2021, a Garda Síochána spokesperson told The Irish Examiner.
“The body of the deceased was taken to Cork University Hospital for autopsy, and the results will determine the course of the investigation.
“The local forensic officer was notified.”
