Only suspects identified in the murder of Ashling Murphy on the Famous Jogging

Police in Ireland’s Tullamore region near Dublin are aggressively searching for any ropes tied to a green and yellow bicycle as they search for the killer of a 23-year-old teacher after the sole suspect in the incident. Her murder is released.

Ashling Murphy’s mangled body was found along the canal at 4 p.m.—about an hour after she finished teaching for the day—on Wednesday by two female runners. Initially, police arrested a Romanian man in his 40s, known in the area and who witnesses said had fled the scene.

Murphy, who was jogging along a popular trail, is believed to have been strangled. There is still no indication that she was also sexually assaulted.

In a statement released late Thursday night, local police, or Garda, said they had cleared the witness and were now looking for a new suspect. “The man arrested and detained by An Garda Siochana to investigate this fatal assault has now been released from this detention facility,” a statement from Garda said. “This man has been removed from Garda’s investigations and is no longer a suspect.”

Authorities are currently focusing on who might own a Falcon Storm mountain bike with straight handlebars and distinctive yellow and blue front forks that could have been left at the scene.

Murphy, a well-known musician in the local traditional music scene, has just graduated and started teaching as an elementary school teacher. Memorial services including tributes from her younger students, who have painted their beloved teacher, are scheduled for Friday in her memory.

“We were devastated,” said principal James Hogan of her Durrow National School. “She is amazing, a great teacher and she has a shining light on her. First grade idolized her, the kids just felt heartbroken. There were a lot of tears here today. ” Only suspects identified in the murder of Ashling Murphy on the Famous Jogging
