Police continue search for missing torso of murdered teen in Drogheda

Gardaí have resumed an extensive search of waste ground this morning for the missing remains of a 17-year-old boy who was murdered and dismembered last year. A search involving around 30 officers of a large area behind the Rathmullen estate in Drogheda began yesterday. The murdered teenager cannot be named for legal reasons, but his killing and dismemberment shocked the nation. Officers involved in yesterday’s search were acting on “key intelligence” and are hopeful of finding the only part of the boy’s body that remains missing, his torso.
