Was reading about this the other day.

Utterly bizarre indeed.

You literally couldn't make it up.

The Olive Press from Southern Spain, editor/owner Jon Clarke, wrote some very good articles about Amy Fitzpatrick.

This is all the more surprising in view of the rubbish articles he regularly posted on sightings and other things McCann. Those were badly researched and appeared frequently at imo very useful times, particularly close to the anniversary of the disappearance. PeterMac made a list of these çoincidences'once. iirc.

The above link no longer works but here's the outcome of the trial.

Missing children

Post  Andrew on Mon 24 Oct 2016, 12:49 pm

This one was all very strange. I think it was discussed in the past somewhere on here but it's in the news again.

http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/mum-says-husband-jailed-killing-9114769

But Audrey insisted Amy and Dean never had any reason to fear their stepdad - and that he "loved them like a father".

Stepdad kills Dean and Amy goes missing.

Lots of reason to fear.

I've put your post here as there are earlier mentions of this case.

Just to clarify that Amy disappeared first and then, some years later, her brother was killed, supposedly in self-defence.

The mystery of Amy Fitzpatrick

Post  Andrew on Mon 24 Oct 2016, 1:19 pm

The last person to see her before she vanished was her best friend Ashley Rose, who was living just 10 minutes away from Amy’s home in the Riviera del Sol complex.

She had been very unhappy in the days before she disappeared and was spending much of her time with Ashley because she didn’t want to go home.

Amy’s dad Christopher said that his daughter and son had been “terrified” as kids living with Dave Mahon who was jailed for seven years for manslaughter this week.

Forgot all about this one.

He must've been involved in Amy's 'disappearance'..... Surely?

Imo, etc.

We all know that statistically when a child vanishes the answer normally lies in the family/extended family/neighbours etc. This teenager had been reluctantly brought to Spain by her mother and her new partner and separated from her dad who appears to have been a nice guy. I read reports in the media at the time. It was New years Eve and Amy's mum Audrey had been drinking a lot and collapsed into bed leaving her partner Dave (presumably) having even more New Years Eve drinks on his own.

My theory, Amy comes home, probably dressed provocatively as she was a teenager and it was New Years Eve, and most likely a bit tipsy tho she was only 15 I think. Drunken Dave makes a pass at his sexy step daughter and is repelled and she says a few choice words...He doesn't take no for an answer, there is a minor fracas through which her drunken mother sleeps, and Amy ends up dead though this was not his intention. So he removes the body. I may be wrong about this but I think he was then some sort of estate agent with access to property (shades of Murat!)so maybe he could have used an empty property as a temporary hiding place. In the morning Amy mum wakes up with him and they then find Amy didn't come home.

It appears none of her family liked him. the brother must have hated him and may have tried to get the mother to leave him. Back in Ireland Dean would have had more support against his stepdad. The stepdad argued that he stuck his knife into deans stomach in self defence or that it was suicide and he deliberately ran into the knife! The jury didn't buy it. Now four years after he was sentenced for manslaughter he is appealing the severity of his 7 year sentence. I hope the sentence can be increased! Even if he had nothing to do with Amy's disappearance, how could he kill her only remaining child when he (allegedly) loved her?

A very plausible theory, Antonia.

Here's the Wiki link for a bit more info on it all:

I may be having a senior moment but I don't recall hearing this bit before. Ye gods, which brilliant detectives have they used?

Audrey Fitzpatrick has taken on private investigators who have been working on Fitzpatrick’s case since 2008. They are the same detectives used in the case of Madeleine McCann's disappearance. They are following up on names that they think might be significant, mainly two English people.

Just spotted that as well from the Wiki link.

See Amy's mum threatened to sue to stop a TV documentary about the case. And who was the investigative journo - non other than our old friend Donal McIntyre! What other family sues to stop people giving their honest opinion. How upsetting for ace detective McIntyre!

I thought of the dynamic duo Edgar and Cowley.

So far this is all I've found - a company hired by Amy's father.

I've never heard of a young brother - a half-sibling presumably, same father?

A third balloon from Amy's four-year-old brother Alex said: 'To my sister... Miss You Loads.'
