Internet Dating Linked To Murder Of Dublin Woman


eohGardaí are investigating the possibility that a 36 year old woman whose remains were found in the Dublin mountains could have been abducted by a man she met on a dating website.

Remains which were found last Friday were yesterday identified as those of missing Dubliner Elaine O’Hara, who had been missing from her Killiney home for over a year.

The cause of Ms O’Hara’s death has not yet been established however the inquiry into her disappearance and the circumstances surrounding it has shifted to a murder inquiry.

Detectives are trying to piece together her final movements between the time she was last seen alive in Dublin and the location where her remains were uncovered, approximately 16km away at Killakee Mountain.

They are also trying to determine how some of her personal belongings, including a work related object and clothing ended up at a reservoir in Roundwood, Co Wicklow.

The discovery of items that could be used for restraint , found in the same location some 20km away, is being seen as a sinister development. A set of handcuffs were also discovered under water at the location.

Gardaí said they are not ruling anything out.

They continue to examine her computer , which was originally examined last year , in a bid to see if she was murdered by someone she may have met on an online dating website.

Ms O’Hara had been unwell and had only recently been discharged from hospital before she went missing on August 22nd 2012.

Gardaí are urging anyone who may have any information to come forward to aid their inquiry.
