    Ireland - Eoghan, 10, & Ruairi Chada, 5, murdered, County Mayo, 29 July 2013

    Putting this here in crimes because it was too late to put it in missing :-(
    http://www.u.tv/News/Missing-childre...d-508515650e08

    The remains of Eoghan Chada, 10, and his brother Ruairi, 5, were discovered in a car that crashed in Westport, Co Mayo, at 4pm this evening.

    The youngsters hadn't been seen since going bowling with their dad, Sanjeev, 43, yesterday evening.

    The area where the bodies were found has been sealed off for a technical examination and the State Pathologist has been called as a full Garda investigation gets underway.

    Gardai said the children had been found dead in the car crash outside Westport and the father had been injured but was alive.

    Gardai said that the car the Mr Chada had been driving was involved in a single vehicle accident.

    eta: I did find another article that does say they were in the trunk - here http://www.independent.ie/irish-news...-29456572.html

    The children were found in the boot of the car shortly after the vehicle crashed, it is believed they were dead before the collision.
    However, the parents were reportedly not separated/divorced... from same article...

    Garda sources said Mr Chada was not estranged from the mother of their children and that they are not aware of any difficulties in the couple's relationship.

    You can so see this coming...

    Father and mother divorced, some sort of custody issue going on. Dad kills the boys, puts them in the trunk, and intends to kill himself in the crash. He failed at suicide.

    Why I think this - the alert is issued a lot like in our Amber Alert - when the child/ren are in danger. That and the fact they were reported missing at 1:30 am (iirc) tells me that there's some sort of custody issue, AND that there had been some significant concern beforehand that something would happen to the boys.

    God rest you both, little irish men...God rest you both.

    When you find yourself in the position to help somebody, do not feel burdened. Rather, feel happy and blessed because God is answering that person's prayer through you. In that moment, you are God's Angel - His door to reach through and bring light to someone who is struggling in the darkness.

    Be God's Light. Be God's love. Be an answered prayer. Be God's Door.

    Now you mention it I can't find that in the news article either. I just assumed it to be the case because its in the thread title.

    Thank you, nursebeeme.

    I am reposting this link, though I did edit my post above to add it - it does say they were found in the 'boot' of the car.

    http://www.independent.ie/irish-news...-29456572.html

    Seems clear that the father killed the boys, but according to this article, the parents are not estranged... so it does not seem to be a custody issue... unless parents were just in the discussion stages of separating & could not agree on future custody of the boys, perhaps.

    Missing boys, 10 and 5, found dead in car boot after father crashes car 'with noose around his neck'
    The father and his two sons were last seen at around 6.30pm when he told wife Kathleen he was taking the children out and they left home to go to the Dome Bowling Centre in Carlow town centre.
    But Mr Chada failed to return home with the children.
    At the time the alert was issued, gardai said they had no knowledge of any breakdown in relations in the family and insisted that the couple were not estranged.

    He had set off with the boys from the family home at Ballinkillen, near Bagenalstown on Sunday evening, supposedly to bring them bowling in the Dome Bowling Centre in Carlow. But they never arrived, and concerns reached a serious level when Mr Chada contacted a family member by phone and left a very distressed message. Gardaí said the message “greatly concerned the family and put their concerns on a new level”.
    Amid growing concerns for their safety, gardaí issued a Child Rescue Ireland Alert, used in cases of child abduction where there is serious concern for a child’s safety.

    Info released so far does not suggest the father was distressed when he left home with the children... because would the mother have allowed him to take the boys if she knew he was that distressed? Did he have some kind of psychotic break?

    This is the car that crashed into the wall in Rosbeg, yesterday afternoon.
    The driver, named as the father of the two boys, was taken to Mayo General Hospital with injures described as ‘not serious’. Those who were first on the scene described his behaviour as ‘very peculiar’ and said he refused to accept their attempts to help. They struggled to open his door, and he remained in the car when they did and was mumbling “It’s too late.” He asked for a phone, was given one, and was making a call when the local man and a British national, who was also on the scene, made the discovery in the boot.
    Gardaí from Westport arrived almost immediately thereafter and took over the crash site. A doctor, also a British national, and his wife, a nurse, had arrived on the scene also, and were asked by Gardaí to tend to the children. They did whatever they could but confirmed both were dead.
    Much more detail re activity at the accident scene in this article.

    I think you guys call it a car trunk instead of a boot.

    Sometimes, I like being wrong.

    Still, I'm confused now. I wonder what happened in the father's mind to do something as horrific as this?

    We knew there must be more... now it's starting to come out a bit... why on earth would he feel the need to kill his own sons over something like this? And what a terrifying way to die, quite literally at the hands the man you've looked to for protection from all harm... poor wee boys.

    Two brothers were strangled and their bodies stuffed into a car boot, gardai have said

    Irishmirror.ie learned last night the dad of two, who survived with minor injuries, was spoken to by gardai recently probing allegations that money went missing from a community centre.

    Chada, 43, met with fraud cops over the alleged disappearance of a “significant five-figure sum” claimed to be more than €40,000 from the local facility in Carlow.

    It is believed that a gambling debt may have caused a despairing Sanjeev to kill his two sons.

    "Mr Chada was on a committee which had raised significant funds in relation to the building of an extension at the community centre in Ballinkillen, but enquiries at a local bank branch showed the cash had gone missing.

    "The tragic thing about this is that everyone thought he was a gentleman – he was even training the primary school youngsters in the local GAA club many nights of the week."
