Tipperary Man Arrested In Connection With West Cork Murder

A 51-year-old male has been arrested in Co Tipperary today, (under Section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act) in connection with the murder of a man in West Cork last September.

The arrested man is being detained at Bandon Garda Station.

The murdered body of Mr John Ustic had been found in the living room of his rented house at High Street, Skibbereen on Monday September 25th last. Gardaí had later designated the death as one of murder, following a post-mortem examination carried out on the Englishman’s body by the State Pathologist Dr Marie Cassidy, who declared that it was clear that Mr Ustic had died as a result of an injury sustained in a recent assault.

Initially the alarm has been raised when Mr Ustic was found by his partner in the living room of their rented, terraced house at High Street in Skibbereen, at around 9.00am on the date in question. Mr Ustic had been last seen in a nearby car park on the previous Sunday evening, where he had been found bearing the marks of bruising and with major cuts, by neighbours, who brought him to his home just opposite.

It is understood that the arrest may have been made following the examination of CCTV footage obtained from local businesses.
