DEPRAVED former cop Paul Moody is suspected of waging a campaign of terror against another woman.

The Irish Sun on Sunday can reveal the woman is one of a number of people who were interviewed by the Gardai’s ­National Bureau of Criminal Investigation as part of their probe into the disgraced officer.

But the other woman has yet to make a formal statement to detectives.

Although Moody, 42, was jailed this week for three years and three months for the coercive control of a former partner who was terminally ill with cancer over a four-year period, the monster could face further action.

A source said: “It’s possible he could face other charges because there’s at least another woman out there who had concerns about his behaviour.

“The worry is that he has done this before because of the extreme nature of his intimidation and coercive control.

“If other statements against him are made they will be fully investigated.”

As Moody begins his time behind bars, The Irish Sun on Sunday has learnt details about his time at the Garda training college at Templemore.

The coward arrived at the Co Tipperary cop school in August 2000 and even then, concerns were being raised among recruits about his behaviour.

A former trainee said: “He was just such a crude and pathetic individual who used to leech after women.

“There were some good recruits there who were initially fooled by him, but they quickly distanced themselves from him because of his behaviour.”

They added: “He would boast about his sexual exploits, and everything was all about him. It’s a mystery as to why someone like him would want to be a garda serving the community.”

Moody was held in an isolation unit at Dublin’s Mountjoy Prison after being caged before being moved to the Midlands Prison, in Portlaoise, after concerns were expressed for his safety.

Garda Representative Association president Brendan O’Connor last night told how the group’s members were “appalled” by Moody’s actions.

STUNNED INVESTIGATORS

He said: “It’s very difficult for ­members to deal with. The message from our members is we want to reach out to victims and ensure it doesn’t matter who the perpetrator is, or their perceived status, if you make a complaint, it will be pursued.”

Although Moody considered himself to be untouchable, he was caught after he handed over his phone after making a claim of intimidation against an associate of his victim.

But investigators were left stunned when they uncovered thousands of his horrific messages to his victims.

And the Director of Public Prosecutions accepted his last-minute guilty plea to a single coercive control charge as they feared his terminally ill victim may have passed away before his trial.

Before his suspension from the Gardai in 2021, Moody had been placed on a list for promotion.

Another source added: “Who are the people that supported him in the Garda organisation? If he didn’t have support, he wouldn’t have made it on to that list.”
