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.
