Anastasia Kriegel
Gardaí have confirmed that two juvenile males arrested yesterday as part of the investigation into the murder of Anastasia Kriegel remain in custody.

The 13 year-olds are being held at two separate Dublin Garda Stations.

The 14-year-old was found murdered at a disused house on the Clonee Road in the Lucan are of Dublin last week.

Gardaí are continuing their investigation into her death, studying DNA evidence and CCTV footage from the area.

Ana, as she was also known, was last seen at St Catherine's Park at 5.30pm last Monday, close to the disused house where her body was found.

Anyone with information, or who can assist with the investigation, is asked to contact Lucan garda station on 01-666-7300, the Garda Confidential Telephone Line at 1800-666-111 or any garda station.

Update:

One of the 13-year-old juveniles has now been charged with murder.

The second teenager has been released without charge. A file is being prepared for the DPP.

It has taken over a week from the time Ana's body was found to charge someone in connection with her murder.

Gardaí wanted to be sure they had all the necessary DNA evidence and supports in place.

The boys were questioned by specialist child interviewers and were also accompanied by their parents.
