Gardaí have contacted a male witness in the investigation into the murder of mother-of-two Lisa Thompson.
s Thompson’s body was discovered at her home in Sandyhill Gardens, Ballymun, Dublin on the afternoon of May 10.
Gardaí has video surveillance of the man handing in the card at Finglas Garda train station.
A Garda spokesman said after the public appeal that a man had contacted the investigative team and that this witness is currently assisting with their investigation.
“An Garda Síochána in Ballymun would like to thank the public for their support to date with this investigation and continues to make an appeal to anyone who may have information regarding the murder of Lisa Thomson and who has not yet contacted the investigative team to urgently contact the Ballymun Garda now station on 01 666 4400 or the Garda Confidential Line on 1800 666 111,” the spokesman said.
Gardaí are understood to be working on the theory that Ms Thompson was murdered in a frenzied knife attack at her home over the weekend of May 7, sustaining around a dozen fatal stab wounds.
There was no sign of a break-in or a fight or struggle on their property, supporting the theory that Ms Thompson most likely knew her killer.
Gardaí believe Ms Thompson’s body may have been at the home for two days before being found by neighbors on Tuesday afternoon last week.
Her children have been living with their father for some time and were not in the house with her when she was killed.
Meanwhile, Ms Thompson’s funeral arrangements have been announced.
She will rest at the Michael Doyle Funeral Home in the village of Finglas between 3pm and 5pm on Saturday.

“Lisa will be sorely missed and remembered by her children and her father Thomas, mother, siblings, aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, extended family, neighbors, friends and everyone who knew and loved her.”
