Gardai are investigating a second possible murder in the town following the discovery of the body of a man in Sligo last night.
Gardaí were called to a house off Connaughton Road at 10.30pm last night where the body of a man in his 50s was found.
The man was found in the house on the City View estate and he had sustained significant physical injuries.
The man’s body remains at the scene, pending a post-mortem examination.
Local gardaí later arrested a man in his early 20s on suspicion of murder.
The overnight developments followed the discovery of the remains of another man in the town on Monday evening. Aidan Moffitt’s mutilated body was found in his home in Cartron Heights.
Gardaí said they were investigating whether Mr Moffitt might have met his killer online.
They are also examining the possibility that there may have been a hate-related motive to the murder.
