A chilling letter sent to the Irish embassy in Spain in 2005 warned that Amy Fitzpatrick would “disappear” if she was picked up on the street by her stepfather, convicted killer Dave Mahon.

Mahon (45), was sentenced to seven years in prison for the manslaughter of his stepson Dean Fitzpatrick in the Central Criminal Court earlier this month.

Dean’s savage killing was the second tragedy to strike the Fitzpatrick family after his teenage sister, Amy, went missing from her home in Spain in 2008.

Today, the Sunday World reveals for the first time that an Englishwoman, who Amy had been staying with, wrote to the Irish embassy saying Mahon had threatened the teenager and she claimed he could abduct her.
