17 year old Keane Mulready-Woods RIP.
Gardaí investigating the disappearance of Drogheda teenager Keane Mulready-Woods have confirmed that the partial human remains discovered at Coolock on Monday 13th January 2020 are his.
Keane, a 17-year-old juvenile, disappeared on Sunday 12th January and parts of his remains have now been discovered. This is a brutal and savage attack on a child and is completely unacceptable in any normal democratic society.
The level of violence is shocking and the investigation into the murder of Keane is being co-ordinated from Drogheda Garda Station. It is important to remember that Keane was a child, a young boy, trying to find his way in life, he has now lost his life and his family have lost their loved son and brother.
Keane was last seen at the Dominic's Park area in Drogheda at approximately 6.00pm on the evening of Sunday 12th January 2020. At this time Keane was wearing a Navy Hugo Boss Tracksuit, Black Hugo Boss Runners (brown sole, black laces), Red / Orange Canada Goose Jacket and a Gucci Baseball Cap.
