Post-mortem due for woman attacked and killed in her Co Louth home

A post-mortem is due today for the woman who was attacked and killed in Co Louth.

Elzbieta Piotrowska was found dead in her home yesterday morning after suffering serious, brutal injuries.


A 32-year-old man who knew Piotrowska was arrested after fleeing the scene.

RTE reports that a post-mortem on Piotrowska's body will be carried out later today.

The mother-of-two was attacked with an axe in her home on January 8.

She was discovered just after 11.30am by another woman who had called to collect her. Piotrowska's husband had been at work at the time.


Detective Superintendent Des McTiernan appealed yesterday for anybody with information to come forward.

"People might think ‘I may have seen something, I don’t think it’s that important’. Please ring and let us decide that. We need your co-operation," he said.

"We are dealing with witnesses and people that have information to offer, and in that regard I am appealing to anybody else who has anything to offer in particular, in the Clonmore estate area, Cherrybrook, Bridge Street, and most importantly the Mandistown area in Drumconrath."

Gardaí are not looking for anybody else in connection with the death.
