Missing Amy Fitzpatrick’s stepdad to be charged over her brother’s death

DAVE Mahon has been asked to return to Ireland within days to be charged with the murder of his stepson Dean Fitzpatrick, Amy’s older brother.

Currently in Spain with partner Audrey, the Gardai contacted Dave earlier this week to demand that he returns to Dublin.

This follows the Olive Press’ exclusive new sensational evidence regarding  the night of Amy’s disappearance and where she may be buried.

Dean died aged 23 in May last year after he sustained a stab wound during an altercation with Dave in his Dublin flat, allegedly after confronting him over the disappearance of his sister Amy on New Year’s Day 2008.

Dave was told the Director of Public Prosecutions had instructed he is to be charged, following months of consideration. But as yet he does not know exactly what the charge is.

“I gave gardai my word when we went to Spain that I would come back if requested and that is what I am going to do,” Mr Mahon told The Star.

“I am going to try to be strong for myself and for Audrey. I will have to take whatever happens on the chin.”

Meanwhile the search for Amy continues.

  1. He is just putting on an act for the public and the police.
    Remember the last time with the drink? managed to worm his way out of that and then bragged about how great he was at beating the system.
    This guy has no feelings and needs to be behind bars for ever.
    If he had done the sentence in prison the judge had given him then Dean Fitzpatrick most likely would not have lost his young life.
    If anybody thinks this “cold” and ” calculated” killer is on the right side of morality then they need to question their own moral standards.
    This crime is exactly what it looks like and his antics belong in a theatre.

    irish independent -13 March 2013
    Dublin District Court heard that Mahon had been seen driving dangerously by an off-duty garda who followed him in north Dublin on January 1, last, the fifth anniversary of his step-daughter’s disappearance.

    After being tailed by the off-duty garda he was arrested near his home at Lorcan Drive, in Santry, in Dublin.

    He had pleaded not guilty to drink- driving, three counts of dangerous driving and one charge of careless driving. He was convicted of all charges.

    Judge Ann Watkin described the 42-year-old’s dangerous driving as “horrendous” and said he had told “blatant lies”.


    She added, as she imposed the jail term and a five-year road ban, that he had shown no remorse and it was a miracle he had not killed other motorists.


  2. Not in relation to this case – obviously – he is ‘deemed’ to be innocent until proven guilty – but in general, whenever a child goes missing, or is injured or assaulted in other ways, the FIRST place the police look is at the family. The statistics are overwhelming, and extremely disturbing.

  3. Maybe now justice will be be done. See he is using the walking stick trick again in the Irish media, nowhere to be seen when he was in Spain…propping up the bar!

  4. The irish judicial system have so far failed the Fitzpatrick family.
    So much life destroyed by past mistakes of the state I cringe at the thought.
    The biological father pushed to one side and left devastated.
    His two children gone? what man can take that punishment.
    To see this father dragged into using the high courts to get the right to bury his own son was disgraceful.
    Make no mistake this guy is using the mother and missing Amy the same way as the disappearing walking stick.
    Portraying himself as a caring person is his way of making suckers out of the public and the police.
