Carn man suspected of stabbing three people
27-year-old dies after being struck by car in Germany
The father of a dead Carn man suspected of stabbing three people in a frenzied attack in Germany has said he could see no wrong in his son.
Enda McLaughlin (above), from Glentogher, died after being struck by a car while he ran across the motorway in an apparent attempt to flee German police.
Speaking to the Inishowen Independent yesterday an emotional Pat McLaughlin said his 27-year-old son was denied the help he needed. “He was my son and I didn’t see any wrong in him. I didn’t raise him to die in a foreign country to sell newspapers,” he said. “He had his troubles but we couldn’t get him the help he needed. He was failed by the Irish authorities,” Pat added.
Speaking at the family home in Glentogher, Jonathan McLaughlin, a brother of the deceased, said Enda had gone to Germany in recent weeks to build a new life, which sadly ended in tragedy.
