Gardaí are examining a blood-stained note found in Hennessy's vehicle after his death.

Her suspected kidnapper Mark Hennessy, 40, a married father-of-two from nearby Bray, was shot dead by Gardaí in Dublin on Sunday night.

In the course of the ongoing investigation, reports said the suspect's DNA samples will now be crosschecked with the DNA database for any links to unsolved recent sex crimes that happened in the last 20 years.
