GARDAI investigating the suspicious death of a man, whose body was found in the garden of a house in Castletroy yesterday have arrested a woman.

The body - believed to be that of missing Polish man Michael Rejmer - was discovered at the rear of a semi-detached house at the Briarfield estate at around 11am.

It is reported his body, which has not yet been formally identified, was found concealed under some wooden pallets, turf and plastic sheeting.

Members of the Garda Technical Bureau are continuing their examinations at the scene and a post mortem is due to be conducted later today by the State Pathologist at University Hospital Limerick.

Mr Rejmer, 38, who works at McDonalds in Castletroy was last seen on December 30, last. He was formally reported missing on Wednesday.

A 33-year-old woman, who was arrested late last night, is being detained at Henry Street garda station under Section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act.

Superintendent Derek Smart, who is leading the investigation, is appealing for anyone with information to come forward to gardai.

“What I’m appealing for is for anybody who may have been in the Briarfield area from the 30th of December that they would come forward to us if they have seen or heard anything suspicious in that area or indeed if they are aware of any information whatsoever which led to this person being found at the rear of the garden,” he said.

Henry Street garda station can be contacted at (061) 212400.
