Killer Dave Mahon walked free from prison this week after serving five years for the manslaughter of his stepson, 23-year-old Dean Fitzpatrick, who he knifed to death in 2013.

Just five years previous, Dean’s sister Amy went missing without a trace on Spain’s Costa Del Sol aged just 15 after Mahon and their mother Audrey relocated there to start a new life.

But with both children gone in horrific circumstances Audrey has waited patiently for Mahon’s release. Here, Nicola Tallant chats to journalist Eugene Masterson about the dreadful events that have defined their marriage.

We discuss the mysterious disappearance of Amy, the dreadful knife attack on Dean and the extraordinary love that their mother still holds for a killer.
