GARDAÍ INVESTIGATING the murder of 20-year-old student Cameron Blair have retrieved video footage relating to the incident.
A public appeal for information following the stabbing of Mr Blair at a house party in Cork resulted in a number of people coming forward with information, including video footage of the night in question, which will assist in the investigation.
Investigating Gardaí are following a number of leads following the public appeal, with a Garda spokesperson telling local outlet Echo Live that the team is satisfied with how the investigation is going.
Mr Blair was stabbed in the neck during an altercation at a house party on Bandon Road on January 16th, 2020.
It is believed a number of unidentified people gate-crashed the party and became violent when they were asked to leave. An assailant slashed Mr Blair in the neck before fleeing.
Mr Blair staggered into the street and collapsed. He was treated at the scene before being taken to University Hospital Cork where he sadly died from his injuries.
Reports indicate that Gardaí are searching for a number of teenagers in relation to Mr Blair's murder, and have dismissed false reports that a person of interest had left the country.
The CIT student is being mourned by his friends, family, fellow students and members of Bandon Rugby team.
Dr Barry O'Connor, President of the Cork Instutute of Technology, said:
“The entire CIT community is in shock at the untimely death of one of our students and in such dreadful circumstances.
“Our heartfelt sympathies go out to the family and friends of the deceased who was a valued member of our CIT community.
“While our second semester lectures have not yet commenced, counselling and other necessary supports will be put in place by CIT for his classmates and his fellow students here in the Institute.
“We are also working in close cooperation with our CIT Students’ Union to help students cope with this terrible tragedy.
“I am confident that our UCC (University College Cork) colleagues will also be putting supports in place for their students who are also traumatised by this fatality.”
