DETECTIVES from the PSNI’s Major Investigation Team probing the murder of 30 year old Pat ‘Bang Bang’ Ward in Clogher have arrested a man on suspicion of withholding information. 

The 44 year old suspect will also be questioned under the Communications Act.

It follows the sharing online of gruesome after CCTV footage and images of the deceased.

A video from a house in the street showed a suspect trailing the naked body through McCrea Park around 6.43 am last Saturday morning.

The suspect was seen on the footage stopping several times to catch his breath.

At one point, it appears the victim was still alive while being trailed into an alleyway where his body was found later that morning.

Mr Ward – a father-of-four and a member of the travelling community who is originally from Co Sligo – was photographed lying face down in the alley with a number of large knife wounds to his back.

A man and woman were remanded in custody on Wednesday charged with his murder.
