Gardai are now treating the death of a 14 year old girl in Lucan as murder.
It's after the results of a post mortem were passed on to detectives last night.
The remains of Ana Kriegel were discovered at a derelict house on the Clonee Road yesterday. She had died in violent circumstances.
She had been reported missing and was last seen nearby at Catherine's Park.
Her family raised the alarm on Monday night when she didn't return home, because it was so out of character for not to contact them.
One line of inquiry is that Ana may have known her killer.
It's understood Gardai are examining a number of different routes she may have taken to end up in the old farmhouse.
