Amy ‘not taken’ by German serial killer

AN IRISH detective has discredited claims that a German serial killer could be linked to the disappearance of Irish teen Amy Fitzpatrick.

Liam Brady – who has spent years working on the case to find Amy who disappeared in Calahonda in 2008 – insisted that he would not consider the man a suspect.

“Both the women were older than Amy and both were contacted by the alleged killer after he saw an advertisement in a local magazine,” said Brady.

“This is something that Amy would not have done and there is a gap of four years between her disappearance and these deaths.”

The comments came after Amy’s mother Audrey Fitzpatrick spoke out about her fears over the suspected killer who lived within walking distance of their home.

“I want to know that this man who lived under our noses since 2007, is being investigated,” she told the Irish Herald. “It is only the media that seems to be helping us.”

Ironically, when the Olive Press contacted her she refused to comment.

  1. I’ve noticed this popping up the olive press. I remember the story years ago. I had no idea this was still ongoing! Poor thing.

    There’s something not right if you ask me. No child should be lost. it’s a great shame and i truly believe that the family will be glad to know what really happened without more accusations being thrown around about who may or may not have been involved.

    I’m not exactly sure what you meant Louie lou as i dont know the story all that well, but they always say that the truth about these things is never far from home.

  2. I lived next door to a german man who lived with his mum 4 houses a way from amyshouse he came to myhouse and told me he would shoot my5 year old if she played in the garden he kept taking photos of my 15 year old girl and when my youngest daughter played he and his mother got the hose and got her socked t she was screaming i phoned the police and reported him i told amys step dad as he was my landlord this was nearly 2 years ago nothing has happened and i had to move

  3. Audrey Fitzpatrick has had and still has a lot of help from the Spanish police, her comment about only media help is astounding. Audrey should explain that she took Amy’s mobile phone away from her as a punishment after yet another family argument. I believe Amy is still alive and does not wish to be found, I also believe Audrey knows this.

  4. “Rocki” Aimz never used to carry her phone as it had an irish sim card so she’d only use it to contact her dad, the Spanish police were awful to me considering I was 15 and they called my private mobile and asked me to meet them without telling my Mum and then accused me of hiding her in my wardrobe, don’t put out opinions if you genuinely don’t have a clue on the subject as if Audrey needs any more crap from people like you.
