Gardaí investigating the discovery of body parts at a recycling plant in Dublin have identified the remains.
They were found at Thornton’s Recycling facility at Killeen Road, Ballyfermot on July 31 this year and they have been identified as those of Mark Burke, aged 37, of Dun Laoghaire.
He was identified through DNA.
