In the past hour Gardai have confirmed they will excavate a garden of Dublin home in the search of the remains of two babies who were allegedly killed a number of years ago.
The investigation comes after an unnamed 53-year-old woman has made a number of allegations against her parents, the woman apparently claims that she was repeatedly raped by her father and another unidentified man at at their west Dublin home when she was only a teenager.
The woman also claims that she gave birth to two babies when she was aged 12 and 14, but they were brutally killed by her mother and buried in the garden. It is understood the woman’s allegations only came to light recently and gardai at Sundrive Road have begun an investigating.
Gardai say they wish to speak to the woman’s mother, who is now understood to be in her 90’s.
According to the Independent.ie a Garda source has revealed that: “This investigation has been ongoing for some time, as it’s a historical case it takes longer than normal to corroborate details.
“The case is being dealt with by local officers from Sundrive Road, backed up by national divisions who specialise in crimes of a sexual nature as well as those of a historical nature. “Despite the alleged crimes having been committed a number of decades ago, the investigation is very much live, and as with all cases detectives will have to investigate all the evidence before deciding on what way to progress.”
