Investigation into missing Kilkenny woman upgraded to murder inquiry
Gardai have upgraded the investigation into the disappearance of Kilkenny woman Jo Jo Dullard to a murder inquiry.
The hugely significant development comes as senior gardai will hold a media briefing on their investigation into the disappearance and murder of the Calllan woman in November, 1995.
A Garda spokesperson confirrmed: “An Garda Síochána will be confirming that the investigation into the disappearance of Josephine “Jo Jo” Dullard is now classified as a murder investigation.”
Jo Jo went missing from Moone in Co Kildare in 1995. The 21-year-old was working in Callan and travelled to Dublin on Thursday, November 9. Jo Jo missed the last direct bus home that night so she got a bus to Naas and then hitched two lifts to get to Moone.
While she was in a phonebox in Moone telling a friend where she was, a car stopped for her and that was the last anyone heard from her.
The status of the case changed following an examination by the Serious Crime Review Team.
