Gardai investigating the death of a man in Dalkey say they're "keeping an open mind".
His remains were discovered at around 8.30 this morning in a lane way that leads to an Apartment block just off Convent Road.
Officers say the results of tests on the body will determine the direction of their investigation, and the office of the State Pathologist has been notified.
Detectives are asking anyone who may have been on that laneway overnight or early this morning, or anyone with any information is asked to contact Dun Laoghaire Garda station on 01 6665000.
They can also call the Garda Confidential Line on 1800 666 111 or get in touch at any Garda station.
