Two separate murder investigations are underway in Sligo after the bodies of two men were discovered in their homes in the town this week.
The remains of 58-year-old Michael Snee were found at Connaughton Road last night, while the body of 42-year-old Aidan Moffitt was discovered at Cartron Heights on Monday night.
Gardai say they are investigating if there was a hate-related motive for these murders and whether the victims met their attacker online.
Last night, Gardaí issued the below advice for meeting people from online.
