Still Hunting For 'The Missing'

Larry Murphy, a 36-year-old carpenter and father of two from Wicklow, was imprisoned in 2002, having been charged with the brutal **** of a woman, after being seen leaving the scene of the attack by two hunters deep in the woods of west Wicklow.

... while there's a chance that some of them know more than they've admitted to, there's little hope that they'll ever shed light on other women they may have attacked or killed, for fear of being handed additional sentences.
A courtroom heard eleven months later how Murphy had attacked the woman in a car park in County Carlow, breaking her nose with a punch before bundling her into the trunk of his car.

He drove for several miles to Athy, County Kildare, where he raped the woman, and did so again after driving to Kilranelagh, County Wicklow.

After producing a black plastic bag which he placed over the woman's head, he was interrupted by hunters Trevor Moody and Ken Jones, who arrived on the scene, and rescued her.

He was arrested at his home the next day, after Moody and Jones, who both recognized him, gave his name to the Gardai.

What is worrying about Murphy's case is that he had never once come to the attention of the Gardai, though officers are aware that he lived just five miles from where JoJo Dullard was last seen alive, and was working in Newbridge when Deirdre Jacob vanished, leaving some to speculate about other crimes he may have committed.

Murphy has since been released from prison, to the astonishment and anger of the Irish public, and his subsequent alleged relocation to Amsterdam has been well documented by the Irish media.

Author Michael Sheridan meanwhile, believes there may be a link between Crerar and Murphy.

In his book 'Frozen Blood', he claims that one woman who knew Crerar, informed him that she often saw him coming in and out of a disused quarry in Kildare at various times, digging and burning items, and on one particular night, just after one of the missing women vanished, she heard "horrendous screams" in the middle of the night coming from the quarry, where she had earlier seen Crerar arguing with a younger man, whom the woman believes may have been Murphy.
