Breaking: Man who skipped murder trial found dead in Spain

Son accused of killing his mother fled before second murder trial

A man who was to be tried for the second time over the death of his mother has been found dead in Spain, according to his solicitor. Sean Flynn was cleared of killing Louise Tiffney after a murder trial in 2005. However last year prosecutors were given rare double jeopardy permission to retry him under the same charges. 

In a statement, his solicitor Aamer Anwar on Friday said: “I can confirm that this morning we were advised that Sean Flynn, aged 37, who failed to appear for trial for the murder of his mother, Louise Tiffney 19 years ago, was according to the police found dead in Spain, after taking his own life.” Mr Anwar added: “Until recently Mr Flynn had resided in Berlin.

“Any loss of life is a tragedy, Sean Flynn’s next of kin has been informed and there will be no further comment.” This news comes after a warrant for Flynn’s arrest was issued on Tuesday, October 19 after he failed to appear at court for the second murder trial.
