Irish police are searching for two men who brazenly tried to get the pension of a deceased man in his 70s at the local post office. They walked in with the deceased man, but the ticket clerk soon noticed that something wasn’t right. The two suspects are on the run. This was reported by British media and confirmed by the police.
The strange incident occurred in Carlow, a town in the southeast of Ireland. Two men entered with a third man, his arms hanging over the shoulders of the two of them. It seemed as if the two of them were supporting him, and they were the ones who spoke. They said they were there to collect his pension.
But the counter-writer did not trust the situation. I thought the ’70s looked too gray. “Okay, we’ll take him to the hospital as soon as we get the money,” said one of the men. But the servant called the police anyway, at which point the two men released the third and fled. The seventy-year-old turned out to be dead and fell to the ground. The police have now begun searching for the two.
Remarkably, one of the suspects had already gone to the post office before to ask for the man’s pension. When that failed, he returned with his companion and the dead Pedar Doyle. It is not yet clear what caused Doyle’s death. Police and The Ann Post in Ireland confirmed the incident.
