THE family of murder victim Paul Jones say they want justice for him and are devastated by his death.
The 55-year-old Mayfield native was found stabbed in his home on Bandon Road on Saturday morning by his son Cian.
A source close to the family said: “We are devastated by this. We just want justice for Paul.”
Paul's death was another tragedy for the family, as two of his brothers also died young – James and Conor.
His family is now awaiting the release of his body from Cork University Hospital, where a post mortem was carried out on Sunday afternoon. Under the Coroner's Act, his remains can be held for up to five days.
No funeral arrangements have yet been made.
Gardaí were combing his single-storey rented home on Bandon Road throughout today in the hunt for clues to help them find his killer.
Door to door enquiries were carried out in the area.
Detectives are also pouring through CCTV and are seeking to establish a precise timeframe of when Mr Jones was killed.
The 55-year-old from Cahergal in Mayfield had lived in different areas of the southside and also in Ballincollig.
He was regularly seen walking on Barrack Street and Bandon Road, where he had made his home in recent years.
