Police in Scotland have confirmed that the remains found at a farm in Glasgow are those of missing Irish student Karen Buckley.

A 21-year-old man has been arrested following the disappearance of the 24 year old Cork student and is due to appear in court in the city tomorrow.

Karen vanished in the early hours of Sunday morning after a night out with friends. She had only moved to Scotland in January to study occupational therapy.

Speaking about the discovery Detective Superintendent Jim Kerr, the officer leading the inquiry, said

“We cannot begin to imagine the pain and suffering of Karen’s family and friends and all our thoughts are with them at this very sad time.

“We would like publicly to thank everyone for their support to the investigation. This case has attracted a significant amount of public interest here in Scotland and in Ireland, and the response and support from the community in Glasgow and beyond has been very, very helpful.

“We are extremely grateful to everyone including the news media, for their immense support throughout.”

Karen’s family released a statement a shortwhile later. The statement read by Karen’s father John said “Marian and I, together with our sons Brendan, Kieran and Damian, are absolutely heartbroken. Karen was our only daughter, cherished by our family and loved by her friends.

“She was an outgoing girl, who travelled the world where she met lots of people and thoroughly enjoyed her life. We will miss her terribly.

“We would be very grateful if we could be left alone now to grieve with our family and friends.”
