State will cover cost of repatriating Enda McLaughlin’s remains
The Irish State has agreed to cover the cost of repatriating Enda McLaughlin’s remains back to Inishowen for burial.
The Inishowen Independent has learned that there is an agreement in place with the Department of Foreign Affairs and plans are currently being finalised to fly the 27-year-old’s body back home.
A funeral date has not yet been set for the troubled Carn man but it looks likely that he will be laid to rest next week.
A postmortem has been carried out on Mr. McLaughlin, who is suspected of stabbing three people before being knocked down and killed, but the results of a toxicology report will not be known for another week at least. McLaughlin, who suffered from mental health issues and has a number of previous convictions for violence, was thought to be fleeing police when he was struck by a car, driven by a couple from Britain.
