‘That awful girl’: Dwyer in letter to his wife
GEMMA Dwyer received a letter from her husband around February 28, 2014.
A section of it was read out by prosecutor Sean Guerin SC.
It stated: “Do not believe the gardai, they actually have no evidence apart from my name and someone else’s phone number in that awful girl’s diary.
“I did know her, yes, I was helping her and I wasn’t totally honest with you.”
Mr Guerin said the letter went on to state: “There is another man, someone who likes Real Madrid and wears pink underwear who is involved in this. I believe this girl committed suicide and this man disposed of some embarrassing items on her behalf.
“Why do you think none of her family are pushing this? She tried to kill herself several times. I saved her life once.”
The letter continued, stating that she had “been released from a mental hospital that day” and was on eight prescriptions.
“I should have gone to the police when she went missing, I could have known where she might be, but I didn’t,” the letter concluded.
