It was reported that prime suspect Kieran Hamill, 37, of Crossmaglen in Co Armagh, fled Mooney’s home in Broomfield, near Castleblayney on Thursday morning: “He had let it come”.

Minutes later, Hamill was hit by a car and died. Gardaí are investigating whether he intentionally threw himself in front of the car after the murder or whether his death was an accident as he was “in an agitated state”.

He was hit by the car as he was making his way to the Ballynacarry Bridge near the border.

Sources say that Mooney and Hamill “were known to each other and that the younger man called Mooney’s house. The 60-year-old was convicted of gross indecency in 2003 for abusing a boy.

A family of four, including children, are understood to be in the car that hit Hamill just minutes after fleeing the scene.

Last night, Gardaí said a post-mortem had been completed on Mooney but the results would not be released for operational reasons. Funeral details released for convicted sex offender murdered in Monaghan
