The appalling nightmare for the family of one of the disappeared may be coming towards an end today with the possibility that Danny McIlhone’s body may have been found. Mr. McIlhone was murdered in 1981 at the age of 19. Gerry Adams has issued the following statement:
The apparent discovery of Danny McIlhones remains will come as a great relief for his family. It is also evidence that republicans continue to work diligently on this important issue.
It will also be an encouragement to the other families who are still hoping that the remains of their loved ones will be found. I hope that the McIlhone family will now get the closure they deserve.
