Suspected triple rapist hangs himself in Dublin park before court date

Suspected triple rapist hangs himself in Dublin park before court date

A sex fiend who is suspected of three rapes was found dead in Dublin’s Phoenix Park just 24-hours before he was to appeal in court.

38-year-old Graham Lawlor hanged himself just a week after being charged by gardai.

Any investigation into Lawlor, who is now suspected of another sex attack, is now over following his death.

A source told the Sun: “He has already spent time in prison and it looks as if he couldn’t face it again. He was regarded as a major predator and there is now doubt he posed a threat to women.”

“There was a mountain of evidence against him and he was also having problems with abusing alcohol.”

Lawlor was also suspected of placing ads online for teenage babysitters in order to lure young girls to his home.

The pervert was handed a ten-month sentence in 2007 for molesting a young woman as she slept following a house party in Dublin’s Sandyford.
