The remains of Co Tipperary man Michael Dwyer, who was shot dead by police in Bolivia last week, have been flown home to Ireland.
The 24-year-old's body has been handed over the Dublin County Coroner pending a full post-mortem examination.
The Dwyer family have welcomed the development and say it brings them one step closer to burying Michael.
The Irishman's death is still shrouded in mystery, with friends and family saying they cannot believe Bolivian claims that he was involved in a plot to assassinate President Evo Morales.
He was shot dead along with two other men, including Hungarian-Bolivian Eduardo Rosza Flores, a former paramilitary who fought against Serb forces in Croatia during the Balkan wars.
