The case I can't forget-Rachel O'Reilly

    What’s the point when you already said that you don’t care?

    People kill for countless reasons, even if they seem bizarre to you. Your chances of being killed by a partner are exponentially higher than being killed by a stranger. Staying in toxic relationships doesn’t help either because eventually someone will boil over with anger and resentment.

    I read somewhere that the investigating Gardai believed O'Reilly stripped completely naked before entering the house and killing Rachel presumably in the belief that doing so would lessen the chances of him leaving incriminating forensic evidence behind.

    Kieran Keane was the fellah they murdered in Limerick in January 2003. Owen Tracy, who was in his company on the night, is his nephew who they stabbed multiple times and left beside the body of his uncle believing him also to be dead. He miraculously survived and turned state witness, his evidence resulting in the conviction of the five.
