Skull, bones and suitcase found where Amy Fitzpatrick went missing
The aunt of missing Amy Fitzpatrick is not ruling out the possibility that the discovery of skeletal remains belongs to her lost niece who went missing in Spain on New Year’s Day in 2008. It follows the discovery of a skull, bones, and a suitcase which have been found close to where the Dublin resident went missing.
Christine Kenny believes her niece owned a similar bag to the item that was recovered. She said: “There’s a possibility that it could be Amy as there was a satchel bag found with the remains.”
She added: “The body was found in the hills near Mijas and they reckon the body has been there over a decade. They reckon, though, from the bone structure, that it’s of a woman aged between 25 and 30, or thereabouts. But it takes ages for that type of thing to be dealt with.”

Amy spent New Year’s Eve in 2007 with her friends, Ashley and Debbie Rose, near her Spanish home. She left her friend Debbie’s home at around 10pm on New Year’s Eve to walk home, but never made it.
Amy was not officially reported missing until January 3 and no trace of the teenager has ever been found. Her friends, at the time, said Amy always carried her phone with her and she had it on the night of her disappearance. The device however was found during a search of her home apartment, but it remains a mystery how it ended up there.
The 15-year-old had been living in Mijas Costa, near Fuengirola with her mum Audrey, stepdad Dave Mahon and her brother Dean who killed by his stepdad.
In June 2016, Dave Mahon was found guilty of manslaughter and sentenced for stabbing his stepson, Dean.

In an interview with the Irish Mirror last year, Amy’s mother, Audrey Fitzpatrick said she had recently been told Amy was allegedly being paid by drug lords to sit in the front of their car while they went on “drug runs.”
She said: “I didn’t know anything about this. I was told she would sit in the front of the car like somebody’s daughter. These men were in their 40s or 50s and she sat there and got paid for just being there in the car.”
Audrey said that she remembers her daughter often going out but she believed it was to go to the shops or to hang out with friends.
While the family wait for further details, Amy’s aunt shared recent developments could be vital in solving the case. Ms Kenny recently revealed an anonymous woman who sent her new information could prove to be useful in further developments.
She added: “This lady has never been given her name, but she has been giving information over the years. This information has eventually found its way to me through sources. I haven’t got around to all the bits and pieces. There are about 21 pages in it and it’s ongoing.”
Christine Kenny says the woman insists the people involved in Amy’s disappearance were known to her.
