Moran murder investigation: five arrested

Gardai investigating the murder of 26 year old Thomas Moran in November of last year have arrested five people today.

Two men and three women, in their 20s and 30s, were arrested at 8am this morning.

Mr. Moran was shot dead some time around midnight on November 12/13.He had gone to the drugs pusher and it is understood he was refused drugs. Some time later, an attempt was made to attack the house where the drug dealer was residing.

One theory is that he owed money to the drugs dealer and was not given a “fix” when he went in search for heroin that night.It was the morning after that the body of the man was found on waste ground in the area.
