The family of a Co Donegal man who was butchered to death have demanded a fresh probe into his death on the eve of the 10th anniversary.
‘Gentle giant’ Shun Duffy, 36, suffered a horrific death at his home at Meenacross, near Dungloe, in January 2005.
He had been beaten and had an arrow sticking out of his arm when found by Gardai.
Gardai have interviewed more than 1,000 people in relation to their murder enquiry but nobody has ever been charged with the brutal death.
Now the family of the 6’4” part-time bouncer are demanding a fresh investigation as it nears the anniversary of his death on January 29th.
His sister Karena, 43 told the Irish Star “Donegal Gardai can do no more. New guards must come in to solve Shaun’s murder. Nothing has happened in the case for ages. The gardai have told us nothing new at all. It’s the same old story.
“They should pass it on toe expert cold-case gardai who can find who killed him. There has been nothing but excuses.”
Karena added that gardai said it was Shaun’s own privacy which had hindered their investigation.
They said the crossbow which helped to killed him actually belonged to Shaun.
“They said he kept it on the mantelpiece, but I knew my brother Shaun and he did not have a crossbow on his fireplace. He was vain and only had a mirror on it.
“All we really know is that Shaun died in the early hours of January 29th, 2005,” added his heartbroken sister.
