Authorities in Glasgow have finally released the body of murdered Irishwoman Karen Buckley, after a second post-mortem examination was performed on her body at the request of her killer, Alexander Pacteau.
Karen’s family will accompany her body during the flight back to Ireland, and the funeral is expected to take place on Tuesday at the young woman’s hometown of Mourneabbey, in north Cork.
Her family have published a death notice, reading: “Karen will lie in repose on Monday evening, April 27, at O’Connell’s Funeral Home, St. James’ Avenue, Mallow from 4pm to 8pm.
The removal will be to the Church of St. Michael the Archangel, Analeentha, near her home in Mourneabbey.
The Requiem Mass will take place on Tuesday at 2pm. Karen’s funeral will be to St. John’s Cemetery, Burnfort.”
The man charged with her killing, Alexander Pacteau, appeared in court briefly today. He entered no plea.
Mr. Pacteau has been remanded in custody, and is expected to stand trial later this year.
