Authorities looking into the death of Sophie Toscan du Plantier have executed a warrant search at the Bantry, County Cork apartment where primary suspect Ian Bailey resided until his passing last Sunday.

Numerous objects were taken into custody, such as a laptop, memory sticks, and personal notebooks, in addition to individual items that may be used to create a DNA profile, reports RTE.

Local detectives working on the Sophie Toscan du Plantier murder case conducted the search in conjunction with detectives from the Serious Crime Review Team, who are reviewing the cold case file from the first inquiry.

The seized objects will now undergo additional scrutiny to determine their potential as crucial pieces of evidence for the garda inquiry, reports RTE.

In a statement to RTÉ News tonight, a Garda spokesman said: “As part of the ongoing investigation into the murder of Sophie Toscan du Plantier in 1996, Gardaí conducted a search under warrant of a residential property in Bantry, County Cork, earlier today. As this is an ongoing investigation, An Garda Síochána will not be commenting further at this time,” reports RTE.
