Gardaí investigate Ballincollig murder

Monday, 11th June, 2018 10:30am

A post-mortem on a man who was murdered in Cork on Sunday is taking place this morning.

Gardaí are currently investigating the murder of Mikolaj Wilk at The Bridge House, Maglin in Ballincollig. They responded to an incident at approximately 3.17am on Sunday morning to the address where Mr Wilk, originally from Poland, lived with his partner. The 35-year old, also known as Nick, was seriously injured with life-threatening injuries and was given medical attention while Gardaí awaited the arrival of paramedics.

Mr Wilks was removed to the CUH, where he later died of his injuries. His partner, who is in her early 30s, remains in hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

The assailants fled the scene before Gardaí arrived, and the direction of travel or mode of transport is unknown.

At approximately 4.20am, Cork County Fire Service responded to a car on fire at Iniskenny, Ballinora in Waterfall, within six kilometres from where the attack took place. Both scenes are currently being preserved and undergoing forensic examinations.

Investigating Gardaí are appealing to anyone with information or to anyone who may have witnessed this incident to contact the Gardaí. They are particularly anxious to speak to any drivers who may have dash cam footage and travelled in Maglin, Ballincollig, Ballinora or Waterfall between 2am and 5am on Sunday 10 June, or who may have seen any suspicious or unusual activities in these areas within the last three days.

The incident room is based at Gurranabraher Garda Station and can be contacted on 021- 4946200, the Garda Confidential Line 1800 666 111 or any Garda Station.
