Gar­daí in ap­peal for wit­nesses af­ter fa­ther is beaten and left to die in park

The Irish Mail on Sunday - - NEWS - By Eoin Reynolds

THIS is the Ro­ma­nian fa­ther of one who was beaten and left to die in a Dublin park on Fri­day.

Ioan Artene Bob was found in Sean Walsh Park in Tal­laght at around 8am with in­juries to his chest and body. A passerby saw the wounded man and alerted emer­gency ser­vices.

Paramedics treated the vic­tim at the scene be­fore trans­fer­ring him to Tal­laght Hos­pi­tal where he passed away a short time later.

Gar­daí be­lieved from the out­set that foul play was in­volved and treated the in­ves­ti­ga­tion as a se­ri­ous as­sault or mur­der.

A post-mortem was car­ried out by As­sis­tant State Pathol­o­gist Dr Mar­garet Bol­ster, con­firm­ing that the man was the vic­tim of an as­sault which led to his death.

Gar­daí im­me­di­ately launched a mur­der in­ves­ti­ga­tion and have asked wit­nesses or any­one who knew the vic­tim, or who might have in­for­ma­tion, to con­tact gar­daí at Tal­laght or any Garda sta­tion.

In­ves­ti­ga­tors said the 49year-old, whose eight-year-old son and part­ner live in Ro­ma­nia, worked in the con­struc­tion in­dus­try in Ire­land and was em­ployed in the Car­rick­mines area of south Dublin re­cently.

He came to Ire­land three years ago and was not known to gar­daí.

He was last seen on Dublin’s Moore Street on Thurs­day evening at 8.30pm.

Su­per­in­ten­dent Ian Lackey, who is lead­ing the in­ves­ti­ga­tion, said: ‘We would ap­peal to any­body who may have seen him in the Moore Street area of the city cen­tre around that time, or who may have trav­elled out to Tal­laght on public trans­port.

‘We would also ap­peal to any­body who may have used the park.

‘It is a pop­u­lar amenity in re­la­tion to jog­ging and dog­walk­ing.’

Su­per­in­ten­dent Lackey said that any­thing, even if it seems in­signif­i­cant, could be of value in the in­ves­ti­ga­tion and should be brought to the at­ten­tion of gar­dai.

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion can con­tact Tal­laght Garda sta­tion on 01 6666000.
