The chief suspect for the murder of art student Emer O’Loughlin was tracked down to a drug rehabilitation facility in Scotland, but was discharged before gardaí became aware of his whereabouts, the Sunday Independent can reveal.

The mutilated and charred body of 23-year-old Ms O’Loughlin was discovered in a burnt-out caravan belonging to her neighbour, John Griffin, in Ballbornagh, Co Clare, in April 2005.
