Gardai have discovered human remains during a search for body parts of convicted rapist James Nolan.
The Garda Water Unit search team found a decomposed part of a leg in Monaghan reports The Irish Independent, after searches for the severed head and other body parts resumed this week.
Gardai believe that James Nolan’s body parts are around different parts of Ireland, with his torso found on April 10th at Tolka Valley Park in Finglas.
They are working on the theory that Nolan was strangled in Glasnevin Cemetery by someone known to him in 2010, with his body dismembered, his head severed and his fingers cut off.
In 1986 Nolan was jailed for 14 years for the rape and false imprisonment of a 23-year-old woman, considered to be one of the worst attacks to ever happen in Ireland.
