Investigations continue following the death of a nine year old boy

Gardaí are continuing with their investigations this morning after a boy was found dead at a house in Co Donegal on Monday night.


The nine-year-old was found unresponsive in a house in the St Johnston area.  The boy was pronounced dead at the scene a short time later and his remains were removed to Letterkenny University Hospital where a postmortem will be carried out.


The child’s identity has not been released by Gardaí.


Gardaí say the results of the postmortem would determine the course of any further investigation.
