It is a somewhat confusing case that the Irish police have to solve.
Two men are believed to have carried the body of a relative to a post office in Carlow, south-east Dublin, on Friday morning to collect his pension money. They would have previously asked the postal employees if they could collect his pension in his place because he was ill, which they had been refused.
It collapsed towards the freezer
The suspects assure that the man died on the spot: “He was alive when we left the house,” one of them told the Sunday World. ‘He probably died at the post office – I believe he collapsed towards the freezer where the ice creams are,’ one of the suspects said. “We had to lift him up and take him to the post office, but he never got his money back. »
A post-mortem examination of the man, believed to be 66, ruled out any foul play. According to the Irish Times, the deceased lived about 500 yards from the post office and police are investigating “what condition” he was in when he was taken from his home to the business.
