A man in his 20s remains in custody in Tullamore this afternoon in connection with the murder of Leitrim man Pat Heeran.
The man was arrested yesterday in the midlands on suspicion of killing the 48-year-old Mohill native who has been missing since 2011.
Gardai from Carrick-on-Shannon arrested two people yesterday in connection with the disappearance of Mr Heeran over eight years ago.
A woman in her 20s was also arrested and was being questioned by Gardai on suspicion of withholding information.
The arrests are the first since the case was upgraded to a murder investigation in 2016 after a number of people were also arrested in 2014 in connection with his disappearance.
