TOXICOLOGY results will prove vital in the investigation into the death of a man found dead in a mobile home in Ladysbridge.

The man, named locally as 29-year-old Jonas Grajauskas, from Lithuania but living in Watergrasshill, was found dead at a property in Shanvagoon, Ladysbridge on Monday morning.

He had a number of injuries to his body. An autopsy and toxicology tests were carried out at Cork University
Hospital. Results of the toxicology tests will not be available to investigating gardaí for up to six weeks.

However, Garda sources said they are happy with the progress of their investigation.

One man in his late 20s was arrested on Monday and was released without charge late on Monday night. A file will be prepared for the DPP in relation to the arrest. Mr Grajauskas had been visiting at the property when he died.

Mr Grajauskas’s body remains at the Cork City Morgue at Cork University Hospital. It can be held for up to five days under the Coroner’s Act.

Earlier this year, he avoided five months in jail after being caught in possession of drugs for his own use, for the seventh time.

Instead, he was ordered to do 200 hours of community service.

The court was told he had more than 50 previous convictions.
