A MAN in his 30s who was arrested in connection with the 2010 murder of father-of-one Lee Slattery has been released without charge, Gardaí have confirmed.

The man was arrested and questioned on May 28 and 29, but Gardaí have confirmed this Thursday (May 30) lunchtime that the man has been released without charge.

Investigations into the killing are ongoing, and Gardaí are appealing for anyone with any information on the incident to come forward.

Anyone with any information into Mr Slattery’s killing is asked to contact Mayorstone Garda Station on 061 456 980, the Garda Confidential Line at 1800 666 111, or any Garda Station.

Mr Slattery’s (24) body was found in the Delmege House estate in Moyross on May 31, 2010, having been shot in the head and body.

Gardaí were working on the theory that Lee Slattery was murdered by associates of the McCarthy-Dundon criminal gang over an outstanding drug debt.

At the time, Garda Superintendent John Gilligan, Garda Press Office, now retired, said: “There are people out there with information and we’re anxious that those people come forward, in confidence, and speak to us.”
