Gardaí issue description of Murray murder suspect

Thursday 30 September 1999 21.51

Gardaí have issued a description of a man they want to question in connection with the murder of Raonaid Murray, the 17-year-old South Dublin schoolgirl who was stabbed to death earlier this month. She was attacked close to her home in the Glenageary area. Gardaí believe that the man was seen arguing with Raonaid less than an hour before she was killed.

He is described as five foot ten in height 25-years-old with sandy coloured hair styled like that of the pop singer Noel Gallagher. He was wearing light coloured combat trousers and a beige top. Detectives say that the man was seen with Raonaid by a witness at 11.53pm. The 17-year-old was seen again ten minutes later, this time on her own. They have appealed for anyone with information on the man, or any couples who may have been in the area at the time to come forward.
