Francis “Frankie” Dunne who was locally mentioned as the man whose remains were found at Castlegrenna House in Cork, Ireland, on Saturday

A homeless man was found with his head chopped off and arms missing after he was not seen since Christmas Day.

Named locally as Francis ‘Frankie’ Dunne, the victim was discovered on Saturday around 4 p.m. by a neighbor in a thicket near a boarded-up dilapidated house in Cork, Ireland.

The 64-year-old had not been seen since 25 December and is believed to have been on the scene for about three days.

His body was found in the garden of the 19th-century detached Castlegreina House, locally known as ‘The Castle’, which has not been inhabited for several years and is said to be used by homeless people.

Mr. Dunne was known to volunteers who help homeless people in the area, according to the Irish researcher.

Garda Supt Michael Comyns, who is leading the investigation, said he could not tell if the murder took place in the area where the body was found.

He added that the body was only “a matter of days” on site and that the dead was “badly injured.”

A murder probe was launched on Sunday after a pathologist was carried out by a pathologist at Cork University Hospital.

Castlegreina House has been empty for years and there have been incidents of antisocial behavior in the area as people gathered around the house to drink, according to local reports.

Caitriona Twomey, who runs the Penny Dinners charity in Cork, described Mr. Dunne as a “gentle soul.”

She told me Irish mirror: ‘We knew Frankie very well and he was a gentle soul.

“We are all very sad. We are devastated, it is Frankie because he is gentle, harmless and does not disturb anyone.

“There are no words to really describe how bad this is. It’s terrible. I know there are deaths and violent deaths, but this is really on the higher side.

Gardai has appealed to everyone who was around around the time of death and those with some dashcam recordings to come forward.

It is understood that the previous occupant of the house is currently in a care home.

Death comes when the city police are also investigating the murder of another homeless man, Timmy Hourihane, who died in October.

The 53-year-old would have been the victim of a random attack, police said.

Two men were arrested for questioning the death of Mr. Hourihane.
