Gardai who raided exiled gang boss Cornelius Price’s compound as part of an investigation into the double murder of a couple searched what a senior source described last night as a “glorified dump”.

Four people who were questioned in relation to the disappearance and murder of Willie Maughan and Anastasija Varslavanne five years ago were released without charge last night.

They were questioned yesterday as senior sources revealed details of the “depraved state” of Price’s compound at Price’s property in Gormanston, Co Meath, which was searched yet again from top to bottom.
