Baby-faced garda murder suspect was on sex assault bail

THE baby-faced thug gardai believe murdered Adrian Donohoe is out on bail on charges related to a violent sexual assault. The man, in his mid-20s, is the chief suspect for the garda's cold-blooded murder.

A cross-border manhunt is underway for the hood, pictured above, who continues to operate a Facebook page.

The suspected garda killer poses drinking from a can of beer, leering at the camera.

He is from the north of Ireland and is thought to have fled there after the shocking killing last Friday.

Officers have also gathered information that two brothers from south Armagh were part of the five-man gang involved the callous murder. Sources described the men as "reckless and highly dangerous".

Det Gda Donohoe, a dad-of-two, was laid to rest yesterday amid heart-breaking scenes.
