Gardaí still have no witnesses or suspects in the Maynooth student Kym Owen's case. The student still remains in an induced coma seven weeks after the brutal attack.

Kym was left with two broken eye-sockets, a broken nose and a fractured jaw as a result of the assault, and remains in an intensive care unit at James Connolly Hospital, Blanchardstown. The attack happened as she was walking to her student digs in the Moyglare Abbey estate.

Gardaí haven't been able to find a motive for the attack and heavy fog has pretty much ruled out the CCTV footage from the estate. She's been in an induced coma for seven weeks now, and as a result Gardaí haven't been able to interview Kym about what happened on the night she was assaulted.

The investigation has been treated as a brutal attack so far, but some theories investigated include a serious fall and possibly even a hit and run.

Students at Maynooth University have been fund-raising and donating thousands of euro to help Kym's family as they go through this horrific ordeal.

Gardaí have been urging anyone with any information whatsoever to contact Leixlip Garda Station at 01 666 7800, the Garda Confidential Line on 1800 6666 111 or any Garda station.
