Philip Finnegan (24), from Mary Aikenhead House, Dublin 8, went missing on Wednesday August 10. 

Gardaí believe he was killed by associates of jailed gang boss Brian Rattigan. 

Detectives had been working on the theory Finnegan was abducted by people known to him and killed before his body was dumped in Rahin Woods on the Kildare-Meath border around 8km outside Edenderry, Co. Offaly.
