An Assistant State Pathologist is en route to Waterford this morning, where he will carry out a post mortem on the body of a young man, found in the city yesterday.
Dr Khalid Jabbar's findings are expected to determine the nature of the garda inquiry.
The man, who was in his 20s, was found dead in a disused building on New Street at around 6pm yesterday.
Gardaí are carrying out a technical examination of the scene, which remains sealed off.
