Rapist and murderer Larry Murphy

Suspected killer, Larry Murphy is not required to inform Irish police of his whereabouts for seven days after he is released from jail on August 11.

The suspected murderer of Irish American Annie McCarrick will go free, having undergone no treatment in prison, and as yet has not informed the police where he intends to stay when he is released. Irish law means that he does not have to report to the police for seven days after his release.

“So far, he has not informed us where he intends to live. Many sex offenders move around in the first couple of months, living in hostels and hotels. It doesn't seem like he'll be welcome with his family anyway. We have never seen anything like the hysteria over his release, he may well leave the country,” a source told the Tribune.

Although Murphy will be free to roam the country when he is released he will be monitored by an undercover surveillance detective team.

His brother, Thomas Murphy, appeared on an RTE (the Irish national broadcaster)  TV chat show on Saturday night. His intention was to distance himself from his brother before his release and make it clear to the public that he would not be harboring his brother after his release.

Larry Murphy (45), a carpenter, from Baltinglass, County Wicklow, has just served 10 years of a 15-year sentence for the kidnapping and repeated rape of a Carlow business woman in February of 2000.

He is the prime suspect in the disappearance and murder of Annie McCarrick, from Long Island, New York and Irish women, Jo Jo Dullard and Deirdre Jacob.

Murphy will be released from Arbour Hill prison, in Dublin, on August 11. Under the Sex Offenders Act, of 2001, Murphy will inform the police of his location seven days after his release.
