    It's easy to read the papers you know..... :eek:

    Irish Indo....

    GARDAI are awaiting the results of an examination on human remains found at a Dublin Dart station to determine if foul play is suspected or not.

    The discovery of the remains was made by workmen at Killiney Dart station on Dublin's south side yesterday morning.

    Workmen, who had knocked down a wall behind a platform at the station to begin preparatory work for putting in lift shafts, were clearing heavy shrubbery and undergrowth when they found what appeared to be human remains.

    Members of the Garda Technical Bureau carried out a preliminary examination of the scene while Assistant State Pathologist Dr Michael Curtis conducted his own examination at the scene.

    However, a full examination will be made by Dr Curtis at the State Laboratory today to determine the cause of death.

    Ok maybe I should have been clearer, I was wondering how old the body is or if they had found out anything new.

    I heard on the radio today that they think it is the remains of someone who went missing and was last seen in 2002 at the Killiney court hotel across the road from the Dart Station. They are doing DNA tests. I found this link on the missing person website

    It was identified as the chap who disappeared a few years ago in Killiney, Michael Murphy.

    I wonder what happened between the time he "was jumping over a wall near the car park of the hotel" and the time he found his (almost) final resting place closeby.. Bit of a morbid question perhaps, but I bet I'm not the only one wondering..
