Gardai seeking to talk to acquaintance after woman’s body found

by Mark O'Brien

GARDAI are looking to speak to a male acquaintance of a young woman whose body was discovered in Blanchardstown this week.
The body of Linda Christian (29) was discovered as part of a planned search shortly after 2pm on Monday in an area of undergrowth between Clonsilla Road and Snugborough Road.
State Pathologist Dr Marie Cassidy was called to the scene to examine the body, which was said to be in a badly decomposed state.
Ms Christian’s family became concerned when she failed to meet her foster mother on Wednesday, June 28.
Ms Christian’s foster mother had not had any contact from her since Saturday, June 24.
Gardai issued a number of appeals for information about her whereabouts over the past number of weeks.
Ms Christian was said to be a popular figure who was well known around Ongar, where she lived.
She also spent a lot of time in Dublin city centre and was said to be well known by street traders in the city, as well as by people on the Liffey boardwalk.
Gardai are following a number of lines of inquiry into the young woman’s death and are said to be eager to speak to a male acquaintance of Ms Christian, who is believed to have left the country.
Anyone with any information is asked to contact Blanchardstown Garda Station at 01 666 7000.
