A post mortem examination is due to take place today to determine the cause of death of 56 year old Rimantis Tamosiunas, whose body was found inside a house in Catherine Street, Newry at around 8pm on Saturday 24th January. Police in Newry are investigating the circumstances surrounding the death. The senior investigating officer Detective Inspector Jill Duffie said, “We are keen to trace the movements of the deceased in the hours leading up to his death. We would like to hear from anyone who knows him or who may have seen him at any time on Saturday 24th January. Detectives can be contacted at Newry CID by calling 101. If someone would prefer to provide information without leaving their name they can contact the Crimestoppers charity anonymously on 0800 555 111.” Newry & Armagh MLA Mickey Brady urged anyone who might have any information in relation to the circumstances surrounding the death of 56 year old Rimantis Tamosiunas to contact the PSNI immediately “Police say they are investigating the circumstances surrounding the death of Mr Tamosiunas and I am aware a post mortem is due to take place,” said the Sinn Féin MLA. “The news of this sudden death has caused distress amongst the Newry community and rather than add to that distress through speculation, I would appeal to anyone who can help with tracing his movements to contact the PSNI.”
