Gardaí are investigating the discovery of body of a man, believed to be linked to the deaths of twin brothers in a house in Charleville, Co Cork.
The man’s body was found in Buttevant, Co Cork roughly 14km from the scene in Deerpark in Charleville where the bodies of the two nine-year-old boys were discovered shortly after 5pm.
It is believed the boys were stabbed. Their bodies were discovered by one of their siblings when he arrived home.
The small house where the boys' bodies were found is located around half a mile from the centre of Charleville, on the Limerick side of the town.
The brother who discovered the twins' bodies ran to a neighbour’s house and the gardaí were alerted. Gardaí contacted the children’s parents who were in Kilmallock in Co Limerick.
The bodies of the boys remain at the scene and the State Pathologist’s Office has been notified.
The area has been cordoned off and a technical examination is to be carried out by Garda forensic experts.
Gardaí were searching for a young man who they believe may have been linked to the deaths. It was during this search that the body of a man was found in Buttevant.
Around 30 grieving family members and friends are outside the small cottage where the bodies of the two twin boys were found in Charleville— Limerick Leader (@Limerick_Leader) September 4, 2014
