PICTURED: 17-year-old who was butchered in vicious drug feud
This is 17-year-old Keane Mulready-Woods whose butchered remains were discovered in a bag in Coolock in Dublin on Monday night.
Gardaí last night confirmed that the severed limbs are those of the teenager from Beechwood Drive, Drogheda, Co Louth on Sunday.
Detectives believe that the gruesome murder is part of the ongoing feud between rival drug gangs in Drogheda criminal gangs which has now claimed three lives.
“An Garda Síochána is determined to bring those behind this shocking crime to justice,” Deputy Garda Commissioner, Policing and Security, John Twomey said last night.
Gardai have also asked people to remember that the victim in this case is a child and added that they are also searching for the clothes Keane was wearing including his coat, baseball cap, hoodie and tracksuit bottoms.
Gardaí also believe that human remains found in a burning stolen car at Trinity Lane off Clonliffe Avenue in Ballybough at 1.30am on Wednesday are those of Keane’s but they are awaiting DNA confirmation.
As part of their investigation, gardaí have sealed off a house as a crime scene in Rathmullen Park in Drogheda.
Anyone with information should contact Drogheda Garda Station on 041-9874200, the Garda Confidential Line 1800-666-111, Crime Stoppers 1800-250-025 or any garda station.
