BREAKING: Mother-of-two decapitated with axe at her home is named

THE woman who was decapitated in her home with an axe is a 57-year-old mother-of-two who had been living in Ireland for some years.

Elizabeth Piotrowska was originally from Poland but had lived in the Clonmore estate Ardee, Co Louth, with her husband, who was at work at the time of her gruesome killing, for a number of years.

Ms Piotrowska’s remains were discovered yesterday morning when a friend raised the alarm after finding the scene. He had called to collect the deceased to go on an outing.

He was so shocked at the discovery that neighbours heard his loud reaction and came to his assistance.

Gardaí believe the attacker had left the scene not long before this after killing and then partially dismembering the woman’s body inside.

The suspect (32) engaged a taxi driver to take him to the Drumconrath area about 8km from Ardee. After arriving he made efforts to dump evidence including the clothing that gardaí believe he wore during the attack.

He then went to a house on Bridge Street in Ardee, where he was arrested early in the afternoon before being taken to Drogheda Garda station.

According to reports this morning, the suspect had a close personal relationship with the dead woman and her husband and gardaí are not looking for anyone else in connection with the incident at this stage.

Ms Piotrowska’s semi-detached home, the house on Bridge Street and another in the Cherrybrook area of Ardee were sealed off by gardaí investigating the death, as was a separate location in Drumconrath.
