Call on GSOC to investigate Leitrim man's disappearance

Leitrim man, Pat Heeran who disappeared in October 2011

Deputy Martin Kenny TD has requested that Garda Siochana Ombudsman’s Commission take over the investigation into the disappearance of Leitrim man, Pat Heeran, in October 2011 following a visit to the offices of the Commission this week.

Deputy Kenny said:“It has been several years now since Pat’s disappearance, his family are still devastated and the community puzzled.

“I learned recently that new information has come to light regarding this case and I informed GSOC of this. Pat deserves the respect of an investigation into his disappearance or, as I and most people believe, murder.

“I will continue to do all I can to ensure that this happens, that this case is not neglected and that an adequate resolution is achieved.”
