Moran murderer has fled the country:Report

The suspected murderer of Thomas Moran has fled the country according to The Irish Examiner today.

Local sources tell the paper that the man suspected of carrying out the murder of 26 year old Thomas Moran has fled to England to stay with family.

Thomas Moran, aged 26, was shot dead some time around midnight on November 12/13.He had gone to the drugs pusher and it is understood he was refused drugs. Some time later, an attempt was made to attack the house where the drug dealer was residing.

Mr Moran has been involved in petty crime in order to get money to feed his drugs habit. One theory is that he owed money to the drugs dealer and was not given a “fix” when he went in search for heroin on Sunday night, November 12.
It was the morning after that the body of the man was found on waste ground in the area. Gardai had said they were homing in on the main suspect in the killing in recent days however it now appears he has slipped the net.
