A prisoner was last night being quizzed by gardaí on suspicion of aiding killers to dispose of the head of murdered teenager Keane Mulready-Woods.
The Sunday World understands the violent thug, who is on remand pending trial for a serious assault, was arrested in a Dublin prison early yesterday.
The suspect, in his 20s, from north Dublin, is a known associate of slain gangster Robbie Lawlor – who gardaí believe carried out the gruesome murder of the teenager.
The Sunday World also understands that the inmate is the son of a 54-year-old man who was previously questioned on suspicion of helping dispose of the teen’s body parts.
Keane’s head was recovered from a burning car, near Croke Park, on January 15 last year.
The prisoner was being quizzed at a Dublin Garda Station under Section 42 of the Criminal Justice Act, 1999.
Tragic Keane can be named in the media again after an amendment to a controversial section of the Children’s Act overturned a court ruling which had banned naming child victims of crime.
The 17-year-old was lured to a house in Drogheda, Co Louth, in January last year and killed. His body was then dismembered and his remains dumped in different parts of Drogheda and Dublin in the days after his murder.
On Monday, detectives arrested three men on suspicion of disposing of the body parts. The men, aged between their 20s and 50s, were detained following a series of searches in the capital.
All three were released on Friday night and files are now being prepared for the DPP.
SundayWorld.com revealed, earlier this week, that one of the suspects is a close associate of feud murder victim Richie Carberry (39). He was shot dead in November 2019 outside his Co Meath home in a murder linked to the Drogheda dispute.
Originally from Coolock, he was seen as the Dublin link to the anti-Maguire faction directing the younger criminals.
Gardaí believed he was acting with another Dublin criminal, financing the crime gang. The associate of Carberry was quizzed on suspicion of involvement in disposing the body parts.
All three were released from custody on Friday night and files are now being prepared for the DPP.
