FBI agents who came to Ireland identified soon to be released rapist Larry Murphy as very likely the killer of Irish American student Annie McCarrick and other missing young women.

The FBI were invited in by Irish police and identified that the profile of the serial killer was a clear match with that of Murphy.

Murphy is set for release in two weeks spreading panic and fear in his local town in Wicklow where he is expected to live.

McCarrick, 26,, from Long Island,studying to be a teacher in Dublin went missing in 1993 in the same Wicklow area where later six other  girls disappeared.

Murphy is the prime suspect in all the disappearances. He is serving time for rape after being caught abducting a young woman. He had raped her twice and was trying  to place a plastic bag over  her head when two hunters caught him in the act in the Wicklow Mountains.

After he was jailed the abductions in what had become known as Ireland’s ‘Vanishing Triangle’ have stopped.
Now after 15 years he is due back on the streets and even his own brother believes he may try and kill again.

“There is no reason why my brother won’t do it again.” said Thomas Murphy, the brother of  Larry in an interview with the Irish Star newspaper.

“To me it was the work of an animal” he said referring to the rape. “She wasn’t going to survive. My verdict is yes, he was going to kill her.”

Thomas denies that Larry will be living with him in Baltinglass, a small local town, when he is released as some newspapers have reported.

“I never once said I was going to take Larry in here.It would never happen.I want the public to rest assured that Larry in’t coming here.”

I feel under siege, I feel like a prisoner in my own home. People are driving down and stopping and staring at the house. If Larry was  on fire in a bush I wouldn’t spit on him to put it out.“
