Murder of Aisling Murphy
« on: January 14, 2022, 02:03:02 PM »
Seems the guards pissed away a day questioning the wrong guy. Very poor work from them, rounding up the usual suspect instead of investigating properly.

You would love to see the perpetrator lifted as soon as possible.

Did some other joggers not come upon the scene and the attacker, or was that inaccurate reporting by the media?

Yeah that was mentioned in the news report, disturbed the attack. Now this brings into question was she known to the attacker also... awful, just awful
None of us are getting out of here alive, so please stop treating yourself like an after thought. Ea

That was printed but seems now to have been inaccurate. It was initially described in a way that suggested two people witnessed the attack.

For a woman to be beaten to death like that, there would have to be a strong possibility that the attacker was known to her imo. hopefully the guards get their act together and arrest the perpetrator soon.

Seems the guards pissed away a day questioning the wrong guy. Very poor work from them, rounding up the usual suspect instead of investigating properly.

You would love to see the perpetrator lifted as soon as possible.

Two or 3 guards questioning the wrong guy does not affect the other evidence collection. They are collecting DNA, talking to everyone around, checking mobile phone data, looking at CCTV in the neighbouring towns etc. Unless they knew who it was, they could not speed this up. An attack out of the blue does not make it easy to identify suspects.
One advantage of DNA is to rule people out quickly and to identify someone if they do get another suspect.

No but its given the real killer 48 hours to get out of the area or even the country. Who knows where they are now.

Offaly is in the middle of the coutry, probably you can drive anywhere on the island in 4 hours.

Because the initial suspect was foreign, interrogation thru' translation probably took time, plus they had to check his bona fides fully. They could also only go on the description from what witnesses there were. Can't blame them for nabbing this guy as he had previous and they were anxious to move as quickly as possible in case evidence was destroyed. I'm sure they had several strands going in parallel, just in case, as has now shown to be necessary. Have no reason to doubt the Guards' competence in this, they're not the thickos stupid RTE programs make them out to be.

I think the best way is to get the right person as opposed to getting someone quickly. If you can satisfy both those conditions all the better but itís not that simple

A shocking and outrageous crime perpetrated in broad daylight  in a public place. Its just unbelievable and such a waste.

The gardai response has been brutal though. They lifted a fella, released his nationality and announced to the press that the killer and victim were not known to each other. Now it seems they don't know who the killer is! They've made a balls up in the critical first 1-2 days of the investigation.

A truly random murder is difficult to detect unless you apprehend the culprit at the spot.

She was strangled.

Reports of another "person of interest" having been identified.

Not overly familiar with the area, never made it farther than Tullamore Dew factory. I presume looking at Google maps, this would be a pedestrian walkway along the canal used by joggers, cyclists, dog walkers? Be strange for somebody not local to be in this area I thought?
