Warrenpoint murder: 26 year old man released on police bail

A 26 year old man arrested on suspicion of murder and attempted murder by detectives investigating the murder of Wayne Boylan in Warrenpoint last month, has been released on police bail pending further enquiries.

Wayne Boylan, 37, was enjoying an evening with friends at his friend’s home in Lower Dromore Road last month when two cold-blooded killers burst into the house at around 7:30 pm.



The pair, who were masked, fired at Wayne with what police believe to be a shotgun, striking him in the head and fatally injuring him. He died at the scene.

Pellets from the blasts also struck Wayne’s friend, a 21-year-old woman in the face and neck.



Speaking last month, Senior Investigating Officer, Detective Chief Inspector Geoff Boyce, told Newry Times, “This was a senseless and callous murder perpetrated on a completely unsuspecting man.

“Wayne was a father and his two young children have been left without their father.



“He was a son, a brother and a friend.

He added, “His murder has caused his family and friends immeasurable pain and their lives will be forever changed by his loss.”
