Police in Derry investigating the death of a Donegal teenager in the city at the weekend were yesterday examining post mortem results.

The cause of Caolan Page’s death was still unclear last night. The 19-year-old, with an address at Upper Kildrum, Carrigans, died on Sunday after being found unconscious in the early hours of Saturday morning at Magazine Street in the city centre.

It is understood detectives are working on the theory that he was assaulted or died as a result of an accidental fall. He was found unconscious close to the city’s walls.

A police spokesman said a 19-year-old male had been arrested as part “of the overall investigation” but was later released on police bail.

Caolan, a student at St. Columb’s College student is believed to have become separated from friends on a night out.

The teenager’s funeral is to take place on Friday morning with Requiem Mass to be said at Church of the Assumption in Culmore in Derry.

A post mortem was carried out on Tuesday and police are continuing to examine CCTV footage and interview potential witnesses.

The PSNI said police are particularly keen to speak to people who saw a man collapse in Magazine Street around 2am on Saturday or who were in the Waterloo Place area around the same time or who came into contact with Caolan.
