From June 12 to June 16, 2009, a man using the alias “Peter Bergmann” visited the coastal seaport town of Sligo, located in northwest Ireland. He used this alias to check into the Sligo City Hotel, where he stayed during the majority of his visit, and was described by the hotel staff and tenants as having a heavy Germanic accent. The man’s movements were captured on CCTV throughout the town; however, the details of his actions and intentions remain unknown. His interactions with other people were limited, and little is known of his origins or the reason for his visit to Sligo. On the morning of June 16, the naked body of the unidentified man was discovered at Rosses Point beach, a popular recreational destination and fishing area near Sligo. Despite having conducted a five-month investigation into the death of “Peter Bergmann," the police were never able to identify the man or develop any leads in the case.

Or in the evening tide
We loved you, we miss you
May God with you abide."
