Family of murdered Wayne Boylan make appeal

Wayne Boylan.

The family of a man who was murdered in Warrenpoint, Co Down, say someone in the community must hold the key to finding his killer.

Wayne Boylan, a 37-year-old father of one, was shot at a house in the Lower Dromore Road on 18 January last year.

His family told UTV they remember him as a man who loved life.

“He was a character," said Saoirse Lambe, Wayne's partner. "He had loads of friends - he was a good person and he didn’t deserve what happened to him.”

Wayne’s sister Kerry Mc Kenzie said: “He had a real zest for life, loved getting away, loved going to concerts, just loved his family and all his friends.”

The PSNI's major investigation team is leading the hunt for Mr Boylan’s killers.

You carry this every day, wondering who was it, are you passing these people in the street, are they close by?

Detectives on Monday made a fresh appeal about the movements of a dark-coloured car believed to have been used by the gunmen.

Meanwhile the charity Crimestoppers is offering £10,000 for information that could lead to a prosecution.

Mr Boylan’s family urged anyone with information to speak to officers.

“The answers lie in Warrenpoint, should it be one of his friends, somebody in the local area that knows something," said Ms McKenzie.

“We would urge them to come forward.”
