    Default Former Senior Garda Detective found dead

    The man, John Kerins, was found dead in Bailieboro, Cavan, with gunshot wounds, but no sign of forced entry to his house. He had an interesting past.

    The 49-year-old, who was originally from Co Meath, had lived in the area for a number of years.
    He was a former senior detective based in the northeast and also in specialised units, including the fraud squad, in Dublin.
    He left the force in 2009 on a medical discharge.
    He was arrested earlier this year in Cork and questioned about handling stolen property.
    Mr Kerins was a suspect in the disappearance of a local man over a year ago and was also suspected of involvement in the drugs trade.
