The late Dean Lafferty

GARDAI say its “too early” to comment on speculation surrounding the sudden death of an 18 year-old man at his home in Stranorlar on Monday evening.

Dean Lafferty was pronounced dead at the house in Admiran Park, at around 8pm.


Local reports suggest he may have received blows to the head following an incident in Letterkenny on Sunday night.

His body remained at scene yesterday, pending the arrival of the State Pathologist. The results of a post mortem were not being released last night.

Son of Tina, he is also survived by his siblings Bernard, Sarah, Travis, Samantha, Saoirse, Sanesha and JD as well as a large circle of family and friends.

Funeral arrangements have yet to be confirmed.
