A second prisoner has claimed convicted rapist Larry Murphy admitted to “killing”, discussed hiding places in the Dublin Mountains and said gardaí did not have a clue and would never find his DNA “because he didn’t leave any”, Independent.ie can reveal.

The prisoner’s statement was included in the file on the Garda investigation into the murder of Deirdre Jacob that was sent to the Director of Public Prosecutions last year, although the DPP has decided there is not enough evidence to prosecute Murphy.
