“Our investigation is still ongoing and we have spoken to a number of witnesses. However, we are still trying to track down a number of people who were in the area at the time who we have not yet spoken to and who we believed possible to be very helpful with our requests. & # 39;

Mr. Flynn, who was walking with a companion, wore glasses and a sun hat, a T-shirt covered with fleece, and had a telescopic pole.

The officers are keen to hear from everyone who was in the area at the time of the incident, specifically:

  • A white man with gray hair and a gray beard is walking a dog believed to have passed the couple just before the incident.
  • A man and a woman, probably in their forties, who spoke to the hikers before entering the field;
  • A group of four hikers who spoke to Mr. Flynn's companion immediately after the incident and offered to alert the farmer;
  • Another man entered the field and tried to distract the animals from the scene. It is believed that he left a fleece behind.

Anyone with information is asked to call 101.
