Body of Irish drug dealer found in Amsterdam canal
A dismembered body found in a suitcase in an Amsterdam canal is that of an Irish man suspected of being a drug dealer, gardaí confirmed today.
The remains were found last month but DNA and fingerprint tests have only now identified the murder victim.
The 30-year-old man will not be named until relatives have been informed.
The victim, who was from Clondalkin, was facing drugs and gun charges in Ireland. He had skipped bail and fled to the Netherlands.
He had been previously charged after a €100,000 haul of drugs and firearms was recovered in Dublin.
The man was only identified after the authorities in Holland contacted the Garda for assistance.
Both police services are now co-operating to try and determine where the man was killed.
I have added the Irish News to my blogroll, they have some very interesting news...and some very serious ways of dealing with drug dealers..
