Detectives in the Gerald Corrigan murder hunt have carried out a series of raids in and around Holyhead.

Crime scene investigators carried out searches at four addresses in the town early on Tuesday morning (4th June) – but no arrests were made.

Mr Corrigan was shot with a crossbow outside his remote home near South Stack Road in the early hours of Good Friday. The 74 year-old suffered ”horrific injuries” and died in hospital last month.

Underwater searches and road checks have also been carried out as part of the murder inquiry – the biggest of its kind on Anglesey since 2001. Around forty police officers are involved.

DCI Brian Kearney, whose leading Operation Blue Fulgent, says detectives are still following up all leads provided by local residents following Mr Corrigan’s death.

He said on Tuesday: ”I have no doubt that the answer to this horrific crime lies with the public. I would continue to urge those close to the person or persons involved to come forward to speak to me or my investigation team in total confidence.”

”North West Wales remains one of the safest parts of the UK – we need our community’s help to solve the murder of Gerald Corrigan, an innocent 74 year old pensioner.”

Mr Corrigan, a retired photography and video lecturer, moved from Lancashire to Anglesey more than twenty years ago.

He was fixing a TV satellite dish outside his home when he was shot through the upper body and right arm at around 12.30am on Friday 19th April.

He was taken to Ysbyty Gwynedd in Bangor but later transferred to the specialist trauma unit in Stoke where he died from his injuries on Saturday 11th May.

Anyone with information about the crossbow shooting should contact Llangefni CID on 101, quoting Operation Blue Fulgent, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
