Three arrested over murder of Daniel McAnaspie

Detectives investigating the murder of teenager Daniel McAnaspie today arrested three people.

A 17-year-old girl, a woman in her forties and a 23-year-old man were being questioned in relation to the killing last month.

They were being held at Blanchardstown and Finglas Garda stations under section 30 of the Offences Against The State Act.

The remains of Mr McAnaspie were found in a ditch on farmland off the old Dublin to Derry road at Rathfeigh, Co Meath on May 13. He died of multiple stab wounds.

The 17-year-old, who was in Health Service Executive care, vanished after socialising with a group of people in Blanchardstown on February 25.

The arrests bring to seven the total number questioned in the continuing murder investigation.
