What happened to Sinéad O’Connor’s son?
Son od Sinéad O’Connor had died this Thursday, allegedly after leaving a medical center where he was under surveillance for suicide risk and was last seen in Tallaght, south of Dublin.
A police spokesman today confirmed to local media that “following the recovery of a body in the Bray area of Wicklow on Friday, January 7, the ‘missing person’ appeal in relation to Shane O’Connor, 17, has been arrested.”
Sinéad, 55, took to Twitter to pay tribute to the teenager, which she had with the folk singer Donal Lunny, in a moving message: “My beautiful son, Nevi’im Nesta Ali Shane O’Connor, the light of my life, decided to end his earthly anguish today and is now with God.”
The singer, who changed her name to Shuhada’Davitt in 2018, also posted a song by Bob Marley that she dedicated to her son, one of the four that the Irishwoman has had.
According to the media, O’Connor had threatened Tallaght Hospital with a lawsuit in case “something happened” to her son, who allegedly left that medical center where he was under surveillance due to the risk of suicide.
The police had renewed the call to locate the young man, with a message describing Shane’s physical appearance, the clothes he was wearing and indicating the place where he was last seen and where he indicated that they were concerned about his “well-being ” of the boy.
