Garda Appeal to Identify Deceased Man


Gardai in Rathmines are seeking the public’s assistance in identify this man.


This man died at his residence in Rathmines on the 18th January 2009 from natural causes. This man lived at Hazelwood House in Rathmines, which is sheltered accommodation.


Enquiries to date indicate the deceased was known as Neil Cappleman. D.O.B. 2nd July 1950. This may or may not be his real name. Gardai are anxious to trace a next of kin for the deceased. His remains are at present in the Dublin City Morgue.


Enquiries have been made in the United Kingdom. In particular in the Newscastle-Upon-Tyne areas where the deceased may have lived. To date enquires have failed to confirm the identity of the deceased or a next of kin. Documentation would suggest the deceased had a brother John in the USA and a sister Marion in Canada.


The deceased may have had some interaction with the Navy possibly in the United Kingdom.
