A coroner has promised to “keep the heat on” in the case of a man murdered in Co Donegal six years ago.
Andrew Allen, 24, was shot dead at his home in Lisfannon, Buncrana in February, 2012.
He had been shot a number of times and his partner, who was in the house at Linx Park, escaped injury.
A number of people have been arrested in connection with the murder but nobody has ever been charged.
The group Republican Action Against Drugs claimed it killed Mr Allen, a father of two, because he was a drug dealer, a claim denied by his family.
Coroner Dr Denis McCauley, who today held an inquest into the death of Mr Allen, asked Gardai what stage their investigation was at.
Garda Inspector David Murphy told the inquest that the investigation is still ongoing and that an incident room is still set up but added that he was constrained by what he could say to the inquest.
Coroner Dr McCauley said he would agree to adjourn the inquest until January 30th next but felt he needed to “keep the heat on” – to have the full inquest held.
