Gardai renew appeal to identify body discovered at Rosses Point in 2009

Gardai have renewed their appeal to help identify the body of a man discovered on a beach in Co Sligo over 12 years ago.

On June 16th 2009, the body of the man was found on a beach at Rosses Point.

A post mortem ruled out foul play in his death.

It has established that the deceased man had arrived in Sligo shortly before the discovery of his body and had checked himself into a Hotel under a false name – ‘Peter Bergman’ on June 12th.

He was sighted and captured on CCTV in and around the Sligo area for a number days before he was found deceased at Rosses Point.

Items found on the rocks near where he was discovered included; size 44 black leather Finn Comfort shoes, dark socks; a black leather C&A jacket; navy C&A chino trousers; a black sleeveless Tommy Hilfiger jumper; a black leather belt, called Key West USA, made in Italy.

The man is buried in an unmarked grave in Sligo Cemetery and has never been identified.

Gardai are renewing their appeal for assistance in bringing this case to a conclusion. Anyone with information is asked to contact Sligo Garda Station, the Garda Confidential Line or any Garda Station.
