Gardaí have released a man who had been arrested in connection with the death of a man in West Cork in September.

An Garda Síochána confirmed that a man arrested in connection with the investigation into the death of John Ustic in Skibbereen was released on Wednesday evening. A file will be prepared for the Director of Public Prosecutions.

The man is understood to be in his 20s and was arrested in Tipperary on Tuesday morning. Gardaí have been investigating the death of Mr Ustic, 51, whose body was discovered on the morning of 25 September this year at a house on High Street in Skibbereen.

The post-mortem results established that he died from injuries resulting from an assault and the gardaí subsequently confirmed that the death was being treated as a murder investigation. Gardaí are appealing for anyone who was in the High Street area of Skibbereen on Sunday 24 September between 7.30pm and 10.30pm to contact Skibbereen Garda Station on 028-23088.
