Suspect In Fatal Tipperary Man’s Death Escapes Abroad

Gardaí investigating the murder of Tipperary man, 24-year-old Mr Conor Quinn; latter fatally stabbed in Mallow town centre last Thursday evening, now believe that the suspect in the case may have fled the Irish State.

Gardaí had been searching for a 21-year-old local man; appealing to him to contact them and present himself at the local Garda Station. However it is now understood that he has left the State; with assistance, despite airports and ports being alerted of this posibility. A file is now being prepared for the Director of Public Prosecutions, as Gardaí interact with Interpol in their efforts to trace his present whereabouts.

Gardaí have since secured CCTV footage of the fatal assault last Thursday, which shows Mr Quinn pulling up in a car on Bridge Street, before being fatally stabbed, leaving the suspect to flee on foot.

Assistant State Pathologist Dr Margot Bolster found that Mr Quinn had died from a single star wound to his stomach.

Mr Quinn grew up here in Springhouse, Kilshane, Co. Tipperary and went to school in Tipperary Town. His passing is most deeply regretted by his loving parents Teresa and Paul; brother Anthony; sister Sinead; partner Stephanie; grandparents; uncles; aunts; cousins; extended relatives and friends.

Funeral Arrangements
The earthly remains of Mr Quinn will lie in repose at D. Whelan’s Funeral Home, No.1 Bansha Road, Knockanrawley, Co. Tipperary, [E34 V611], on this evening, Wednesday, 18th July, from 5.30pm to 8.00pm.

Requiem Mass will be held on Thursday morning in St. Michael’s Church, Tipperary Town at 10.30am, with interment taking place immediately afterwards in St. Michael’s Cemetery, Tipperary.
