'Ruth Lawrence originally from Clontarf in Dublin, was wanted by Interpol having fled Ireland'

A woman who was arrested in South Africa yesterday is expected to be charged in connection with the deaths of two men whose bodies were found on Lough Sheelin.

Best friends 32-year-old Eoin O'Connor and 33-year-old Anthony Keegan were found on May 26th, 2014 - six weeks after they went missing in Cavan. Ruth Lawrence originally from Clontarf in Dublin, was wanted by Interpol having fled Ireland.

Crime journalist Michael O'Toole told Northern Sound this morning that, both Ms Lawrence and her then partner fled Ireland shortly after the two men died, and he has since been imprisoned in South Africa over a separate matter.

He said Ms Lawrence was arrested after the DPP directed she be charged in connection with the killings. "She will be appearing in court today and this will be the start of the process of extradition. It probably will not be a rapid thing because it does take quite a while," he added.
